Publisher's Summary

If you know Phil Hellmuth then you either love him or hate him!
His rants, tirades, and lines like "I can dodge bullets, baby" and "If it weren't for luck, I'd win them all" are epic and have earned him the nickname "Poker Brat." However, whether you love him or hate him, he is undoubtedly the greatest poker player of our time. Phil is a global poker icon who holds every record at the World Series of Poker, including an extraordinary 14 world championships.
In Poker Brat Phil paints a picture of his early Midwestern life, in which he struggled mightily in grade school and high school, but always had aspirations to do something great. Phil takes you from the low lows of his life to the high highs, and shows you how he developed an unhealthy ego along the way, which eventually turned into his "Poker Brat" persona.
In Poker Brat, Phil shares his own powerful tips and techniques, the ones that he used to set his goals, and then he shows how he achieved those goals as he climbed to the summit of the poker world.

Best Poker Autobiography Ever

I rarely write reviews but felt compelled to write as a poker enthusiast. This is by far the best poker autobiography I have ever read.

Enjoyable, easy listen.

As a beginner in poker, I found this to be a good book. It’s easy to listen to here and there. I like that Phil reads the book and he really gives it his best. It’s good to hear him telling his own stories and I found myself getting lost in them along with him. I know a lot of people find him obnoxious and overbearing but the moments where that comes through pale in comparison to the moments that he is genuinely revealing about his own life and his mistakes and flaws.

There isn’t a great deal of learning to be had, but it’s still useful to to hear him play out many of the hands he has been involved in, and he does go through a lot of them to be fair - so that’s good.

Overall you I finished the book knowing more about Phil as both a player and person, and the poker world in general and how it works/used to work. I also found myself wanting to play more and better poker.

Definitely worth a listen. I wonder how it would compare as a written book.
