Review quote

"This is the best poker book to come out in a long time, and I imagine it will remain the best poker book to come out for many years to come." -- Bradley Chalupski, -------; "As Scott Clements notes in his chapter, 'Regardless of your comfort zone or your results, if you refuse to push your boundaries, you will not progress and grow as a player.' By offering such a variety of quality instruction and insight, Excelling at No-Limit Hold'em gives readers several ways to do just that - namely, to push their boundaries and think further about many different facets of hold'em as a means to improve their games." -- Martin Harris," --------; "When someone who is interested in studying poker more asks which poker book they should purchase, the answer is usually a mixture of Super System for the complete basics, and Harrington on Hold'em for further more up-to-date clarifications. However, it is my belief that Excelling at No-Limit Hold'em could become the new go-to book for those wishing to read up on tournament poker. " -- Will Shillibier,
