As most reviews on it you will find on it say - it is filled with fluff and common sense. Okay there was one guy who called it "revolutionary". Guess what? He's a friend of Dusty's. That you Reptar?
Ayrton - do not get this book. It is not what you are looking for. Stick with the standards for now - Phil Gordon, Dan Harrington, Ed Miller, etc.
Lolz, I do not know Dusty Schmidt and have no reason for recommending his book other than I think it tells
fundamentals and basic stuff that will make anyone who isn't a complete moron into a winning poker player, provided you know some simple basics already.
I could go on and on about it, but I think you should just read the reviews and decide if it is something you are interested in. If you just want strategy tips or how to read people, this isn't for you. This is the book that tells you how to take your skills and turn them into a business that regularly brings in money and maintains a winning mentality.
Here are some reviews:
