There are many lessons in Texas Holdem poker that apply generally to life. The life lessons are universal, it's just fun to use situations in poker to make the point. Holdem players will get the analogies instantly, at least the good ones who know more than what beats what. I have written this book to share some lessons I learned across my life. I trust these principles will help you to deal with every-day life more effectively and will enable you to more fully enjoy every day you are granted. If the tone gets a little preachy sometimes, well, tough. You need to hear it. My sincere hope is that you will take time to physically write a few things down about your life after reading this book and then enjoy seeing that writing evolve across time. The analogies to Texas Holdem are fun. If you play Holdem you will get the connections easily. And if you don't, maybe you should try something new, and begin.
