In his unique story-telling manner familiarized by his CardPlayer column, "For What It's Worth...," Vince recalls the pivotal moments in his life leading to a successful career as one of the world's top poker tournament players.Burgio's book is not a how-to-win at poker item. It is more of a "glimpse of a professional poker player's life." Burgio wants the public to understand what goes on in the lives of professional players, who "just happen to have not-so-normal lives." It covers the author's ups and downs, his wins and losses, those who influenced him, the lessons he's learned the hard way, and he does it with humility. With Burgio's fantastic memory for people, places and incidents, it's a continuous entertaining trip down memory lane.
Pizza, Pasta and Poker is a feel-good book that will move you to both laughter and tears and is well-worth the read.
