Needless to say, when I learned he had released a new poker book, I was very excited to read it, and it did not disappoint. Unlike The Elements of Poker, which was more or less an instruction manual on how to become a better poker player and lead a happier life, A Rubber Band Story takes a different tact and is composed of short pieces relating to poker from a more artistic standpoint. It features essays, anecdotes, fiction, and parables. While I would say you should begin reading this book with the expectation of being entertained rather than being told how to win more money, that's not to say that there are not numerous poker and life lessons that can be taken away from reading it.
I thoroughly enjoyed all the pieces; my favorites were the short fiction and the parables inspired by George Orwell's Animal Farm. Tommy has an engaging, extremely readable writing style that is perfect for recounting tales of poker degeneracy. He also has a knack for concluding his tales with very clever final sentences that wrap up the piece up perfectly and make you laugh or smile to yourself. If you are solely looking to learn how to win more money at poker, you might want to read The Elements of Poker or watch his Eightfold Path video series first, but if you want to read an entertaining book about poker where you can pick up a few valuable life and poker lessons in the process, then you can't go wrong with this one. Highly recommended.
Tommy is a poker player's writer but also a writer's writer. To me, he's to poker what Charles Bukowski was to alcohol - able to live through the degeneracy and squalor of an unconventional life and rise to the surface of the mire with a diamond of truth, an important universal truth. "A Rubber Band Story...." is a collection of these truths. Reading this book gives you a glimpse into a life you cannot experience without donating decades of your life and thousands of dollars to experience.
I purchased the book for my Kindle by first downloading it to my phone. I was waiting for a table so I figured I'd thumb through a few pages while I waited. This was on a Friday, by Saturday evening I had finished it without having the chance to move it to the Kindle - a virtual page turner! Could not put it down. I hope Tommy lives to be 120 years so we can keep getting these stories!
A Rubber Band Story and Other Poker Tales is a must read for every player who takes their game seriously, and light enough for the layman to grasp its bold and sometimes subtle nuances. Make this more than affordable selection part of your digital bookshelf today.
Rubber Band Story is a collection of non strategy related poker stories and anecdotes which leaves the reader chuckling amusingly every other page. My only disappointment was arriving at the last page to find there were no more.
