This book is a collection of several cases and examples. After about 30 pages, I felt like the rest of the book was repetitive or held the same themes. As several other reviews would say, it was much longer than it needed to be.
I was originally interested in this book since the author worked with Game Theory and won poker tournaments but this book is a bit of a letdown.

Decent journalistic writing, but far too long, and not enough new info.
