Poker Book Review: The Moneymaker Effect

It’s rare that I have enough time to read a poker book cover to cover, much less any book at all. Some books, however, grab my attention from the moment I open up the first page – for those books I MAKE the time. Eric Raskin’s The Moneymaker Effect is one such book. Here’s my review of his oral history of one of the most important moments in poker’s history. A great read!
