It is the only book I recommend. My buddy Tony Gregg (The 2013 One Drop Champion) told me I should read The Mental Game of Poker on audio book, I downloaded it in the middle of June 2012 and listened to it every night over the course of the WSOP. I couldn't endorse it more, I've done interviews where people ask me what book I would recommend and that is the only book I would recommend. I couldn't agree with the philosophy of the book more. 2012 WSOP Main Event Champion Greg Merson My mental game is tough, and I ll tell you why. My mental game used to be terrible, I used to tilt, I used to go insane, and this is going to be a plug for Jared Tendler, he wrote a book called The Mental Game of Poker and I don t tilt any more. Justin Oliver, 2013 WSOP bracelet winner (Immediately after winning the $2,500 Four Max event.) The best poker book ever written, and it's not even close. Lex Veldhuis, PokerStars Team Pro
