Poker is a growing phenomenon that doesn't seem to be losing its popularity any time soon. Tom Schneider, former business executive and current professional poker player, mixes the two professions in Oops! I Won Too Much Money: Winning Wisdom from the Boardroom to the Poker Table.
Schneider takes true stories and neatly weaves poker and business comparisons together. The result is life lessons. It's not that there is anything new in Schneider's observations. Many of them are things we already know but probably haven't considered before. And the way he views life (through the eyes of a business man and poker player) puts a unique twist on his observations.

There are thought-provoking takes on personalizing the "deal," asking the question why? when something is different, picking a strategy and staying the course and following through with commitments. Schneider's thoughts on making decisions when going through a divorce and risk taking are extremely interesting and make a great deal of sense.

Armchair Interviews says: If you want a different view of life, business and how poker relates to real life, you just might find Schneider's book a good read.
