I think this is the best poker book ever written. I have competed for many years at the highest levels, and the level of my game jumped when I started studying the material in this book diligently. Every poker player should buy this book. It’s not the quickest read, but all of the time you invest will be richly rewarded. I have read this book three times, and I will most definitely revisit the material. — Brandon Adams, Professional Poker Player and Harvard lecturer
This book had to be written, and only one person could write it. Poker’s place in our culture has been Martin’s passion and expertise as long as I’ve known him. Poker is a story of a thousand stories, and they’re all here. — Tommy Angelo, author of Elements of Poker and Painless Poker
A thorough, well-informed and highly entertaining exploration of the cultural riches bred by poker, explaining why the game remains so quintessentially American while growing ever more universal. — Anthony Holden, author of Big Deal and Bigger Deal
Martin Harris’s Poker & Pop Culture is a lively, well researched, highly readable account of the game’s hold on the popular imagination, revealing its history – from Shakespeare to ESPN, Flash Kate to James Bond, Tony Soprano to Daniel Negreanu – with 1,001 telling details. A+ Americana, and then some.” — James McManus, author of Positively Fifth Street and Cowboys Full
By reading this book you will learn more about Mr. Hellmuth than the title “Poker Brat” suggests. This is a fascinating look into the mind of one of poker’s biggest stars. — Daniel Negreanu, Professional Poker Player
I am pretty sure I have said before that a book I was reviewing at the time changed my life, but this time it didn’t just change my life, it completely 100% altered my entire poker existence… I don’t know about you, but I am never going to be satisfied with where my poker game is. I must admit I don’t know what I don’t know. I have to go out there and find the answers to the questions I don’t even know that I have. I don’t want to just grab any old book from any old shelf and learn any old information. I want to learn the best from the best. I am telling you: Alex Fitzgerald is the best of the best. — Shannon Mack, CardPlayerLifestyle.com
This is the best poker book to come out in a long time, and I imagine it will remain the best poker book to come out for many years to come. — Bradley Chalupski, PokerUpdate.com

We recently interviewed Dylan Linde about his life in poker and about his book. Here are his responses to the seven questions we asked him:
There was a point where I was taking poker as seriously as the other games I was playing competitively (Magic: The Gathering and Tekken Tag) but started making real money at it. One Christmas break my roommate Kevin MacPhee made $10,000 on PartyPoker and that was the first inkling that I could do this as well. That next semester I made as much at online poker as I would have in a year of being a teacher (my college target career at that point) so I decided to give it a go.
