According to Doyle
Doyle Brunson
Publisher: Lyle Stuart (1984)
Pages: 165
ISBN: 0-89746-003-0

If you like poker stories (and I do), then you should enjoy According to Doyle, a collection of Brunson's columns that originally appeared in the magazine Gambling Times and the newspaper Poker Player. The 47 chapters are each only a few pages long, and the stories themselves are short and cute, popcorn reading. He moralizes a bit here and there, but often comes right back with a story in which he comes out on the wrong end. I'm sure I learned something about poker from it, although I'd be hard pressed to say what exactly. The book is entertaining enough to read straight through, and the stories are fun enough to stand up to multiple readings. Well worth whatever I paid for it.
