'[C]offee-table companion to poker by 'New Yorker' writer, poet, and card shark Alvarez. ... This handsomely illustrated work is a mixture of social history and wry personal tribute to this psychological art, from poker's first published reference (to cheating) in 1844 through tales of the game's legends. ... This charming book won't help you lose any less money, but it will make your weekly game seem part of a grand American tradition.
