What disappointed you about The Mental Game of Poker?

The sound quality was poor. The style of delivery was generally pretty awful. It sounded like some kind of school project; really disappointing.

What did you like best about this story?

It's not a story, but advice on how to improve one's state of mind, mostly how to avoid getting 'tilted', when playing poker. I'm sure the guy knows what he's talking about! It's interesting stuff, although maybe more relevant to better players than me, who have more of the nuts and bolts of the game sorted.

What didn’t you like about Jared Tendler’s performance?

I don't understand how he can be happy, putting an audiobook out there that sounds like this?

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Mental Game of Poker?

I'm not sure I'd cut any scenes, I'd just get a completely different cast to do the reading!

Any additional comments?

It's a shame that the sound of the book distracts from the interesting content. I don't know if it's possible to re-record it, but if it is, do!
