Evidently nobody told Williams that the point of writing a book is supposed to be to make generalizations and conclusions based on your experience. Glad the library was the one who wasted their money on that one.
Well I'd have to strongly disagree with this one (how can I disagree?... cuz really it's just your opinion)... but trust me.. there are many poker books that are farfar worse than this one.
I have D's book (all of them actually) and sure I was disappointed with this one but it is far from being the 'worst'. Daniel's section on SmallBall is actually quite good but the majority of the rest of the book is a waste of paper. I wish he'd even written more hand histories of his play, along with his thought processes throughout.
You want to see a far worse book??... Check out Amarillo Slim's Book. It is pure rubbish (got it for 25cents at a garage sale).
