Many of the concepts set out by the book are very useful. What really marrs the book is the occasionally mention of ways of detecting and leaving a cold table early and like issues. That part of the book is just incorrect.
I'd suggest this book for anybody (isn't that all of us) that occasionally or not so occasionally has troubles with emotions coming inbetween plan and execution. Read each section critically and I believe the sum output is well worth the cost.
Now, after months of playing with an "Art of War" attitude, I have finally found the cherry to my Sundae. Zen and the Art of Poker has taken my game to heights that I never knew it could reach. If you want to play like the greats, than this book will show you how. Imagine having the skills of Phil Ivey and the patience of Chris Ferguson, if that's what your looking for, than this is the book that can help you get there.
There is a little bit of fluff (just a tiny bit), which is at the end of the book, but everything else is top notch. The information could have been condensed a little bit further from what it was, but the extra details do clear up any questions that might come up. Plus I loved the quotes from Zen Practitioners, Sports Player's, and the like. It reminds me of the Aposotolico books where all of them are extremely relevant to the topics at hand.
Overall: **** 4 1/2 Stars!!! Definatley a Must Have in any Successful Poker Player's Library!
The Zen theme is both overwrought and shallowly applied; the writing is amateur; the quotes from Zen masters and philosophers are gratuitous and too numerous --- but the concepts are dead on.
