In a remarkably different approach from every other poker book, and a book that is written by a typical player for a typical player (not penned a TV pro) the author explains how he played hands badly, why he made those decisions, and afterward, why the plays were wrong and how they should have been played. Hesse has been charting his mistakes for 30 years as a tool for increasing his profits and avoiding bad plays in the future. This book is a result of the author's painstaking effort. Readers learn from the thousands of dollars of mistakes and years of wrong moves made by Hesse and how they can avoid these struggles and instead, quickly get into profitable territory. As the author says, he wishes someone else had written this book so he wouldn't have had to learn the hard way.
