Honestly I wish all the books have the quality as good as this one

Interesting, exciting, and inspiring

I have not completely finished reading the book yet but I am roughly half way through it. So far, I have gotten interested in Dan Bilzerian history, his upbringing, his struggles, etc. I was interested from the get go on how he became the person he is and his personality traits. It is cool to see how he wants to make people perceive him in a certain way and does this very successfully, especially in poker. His stories are exciting because they are outrages and extreme, filled with gambling, drugs, alcohol, women, traveling, a lot of expensive stuff (houses, cars, planes, etc.), and on top of that, his Navy Seals training. Lastly, I see it as inspiring because he does not claim to be perfect in any way shape or form but shares his honest story of how he has gotten to where he is in life. This shows his ups and downs, which people can learn from.
I also ove how he double downs on his value of honesty and from the book seems like a radically honest person.

I'll most likely have a lot of fun with finishing my read through the setup.

Great stories

I haven't finished the book yet, I am about halfway, but this is already a very fun book. It's got some wild stories and some interesting lessons in it too. The book is well designed and organized as well. Super fun read.


Dan’s book was the first book I’ve read in a long time that I actually finished and enjoyed reading. The chapters are super short and tell small outrageous stories about Dan’s life one at a time so it easily keeps your attention. Truly let’s you look behind all the show and see the type of person Dan really is
