The Elements of Poker is considered as one of the best books ever written, that draws parallels between life lessons and poker. It isn’t actually about the elements of poker. It’s is about the author’s reminisces about his life. How he lived it, the mistakes he made, what he did right. He then applies these lessons to poker. The book talks about how to live the game, not merely play it; and how to handle it, preventing it from consuming your life in an adverse way.
