‘The narrative is so gripping that you might get halfway through The Biggest Bluff before you even notice that you’re getting a master class in learning, focus, and decision-making. I tore through it in two sittings, and haven’t stopped thinking about it since.’
David Epstein, author of Range
‘One of the most extraordinary outcomes of any experiment in participatory journalism. This is a book not just about poker, but about the meaning of luck, the science of skill, and the psychology of outsmarting your competitors.’
Joshua Foer, author of Moonwalking with Einstein
‘A flat out classic. It’s a ripping good story – with an underdog heroine, a Yoda-like mentor, and a cast of wild characters. It’s a sophisticated meditation on the relative importance of deep skill and dumb luck . . . Reading this book is like drawing a straight flush.’
Daniel H. Pink, author of When, Drive and To Sell is Human
‘A page-turning adventure . . . What makes The Biggest Bluff so unique is its honesty and humility. It understands the importance of luck and uncertainty – and how different they look when we’re suddenly facing high-stakes, life-altering decisions.’
Nate Silver, founder an editor-in-chief, FiveThirtyEight
