Yup, I've read this book and listened to a dozen podcasts about this book (click here).
Why is it an obsession?
- I love poker.
- I love probability, which poker is all about.
- I love how elements of poker align with business ... bluffing, betting & having a budget.
- I really enjoy how somebody with no knowledge of the game was able to become proficient enough at it to make a living better than most of us make at something we've done for decades.
- I enjoyed the journey ... playing crappy tables and against average competition and winning ... then sitting at better tables where the buy-ins were more expensive and the competition improved. We just don't do that in marketing/analytics.
