Poker Woman: the book
Poker Woman: How to Win at Love, Life, and Business using the Principles of Poker shows women how to apply winning poker strategies to all aspects of their lives to get what they want even if they’ve never played a hand of cards.
Poker isn’t just a card game – it’s a metaphor for life.
A game of luck and psychology combined with skill, and making the most of the cards you are dealt. Poker is traditionally dominated by men, and Ellen Leikind encourages women to stop betting like a girl and play to win. PokerWoman is not a “how to play” book, but rather uses poker as a metaphor to show how to get what you want at work and in your personal life. The following concepts are all illustrated using personal stories from successful women:
- Picking up on non-verbal cues
- How to bluff at the right time
- Knowing when to raise the stakes and be aggressive
- Choosing the right game
- Breaking into the Boys Club
- How to assess risk
When Should You Be Aggressive
PokerWoman teaches women to get what they want at work and in their personal lives by piling up the chips, making the most of the cards they are dealt, how to win, and if you lose, how to get back in the game. Whether the game is cards, romance, or business. The author encourages women to overcome their fears and doubts, find their voice, figure out what they want, and claim their rightful seat at the table. Although easy-to-follow instructions and games rules are included, PokerWoman is not a “how to play” book instead, it teaches women how to win their own game. The Introduction to PokerWoman was written by Kathy Liebert, the number one ranked female tournament poker player at the end of 2007 with cash earnings over $4,100,000.
