Yes, i have it. Great video, more than 1 hour of just tells, althought most of them are over-acted in the video. Mike Caro is really funny, heīs crazy.
In relation to tells themselves, i think that them and the luck as the most important part of the game, are the two big stereotypes of poker.
They are a factor of the game, but not so important as most people tend to believe. In you are a live player, itīs good to learn most tells and to donīt do them, but if you are going to make a decision just based in if your opponent touched his nose as he went all in, then youīre wrong. Tells are a factor of the game but a very little one, in my opinion. The "real" tells are betting patterns.
Itīs a great book to read and very useful, but you have to be careful in how do you apply the information.
