In Serious Poker, I give some capsule reviews of books I consider worthwhile. But there's lots to say about the poker literature, and occasionally I try to write down some coherent thoughts on books I've read. Here are some reviews I've written so far, with more to come. Note that some of these are reviews in the sense, not in the New York Review of Books sense. The short ones were originally written as contributions to my now-defunct poker book review archive, for which I was encouraging the submission of brief reviews. That archive is now defunct, due to lack of submissions.
