PokerWoman teaches women how to get what they want at work and in their personal lives by using the psychological and strategic skills of poker. The book shows women how thinking like a poker player will make them smarter, sexier, more confident and more successful--and provides compelling real-life stories to prove it. The book includes essential poker-as-life lessons, including: creative bluffing, how to stop betting like a girl, how to read tells (the body language that reveals a person s unspoken thoughts and feelings), perfecting your poker face, knowing when to fold em...and get out of a dead-end job or relationship, overcoming losses and getting back in the game, and how to stop apologizing (it makes you sound like a loser!). Author Ellen Leikind says, Lessons learned in poker can transform anyone into a more powerful person! Women have a natural propensity to many of the qualities that make great poker players: keen powers of observation, uncanny intuition, multi-tasking dexterity, and the willingness to assume risk; they just need to recognize them and use them strategically. PokerWoman is not a how-to-play-poker book (although easy-to-follow instructions and game rules are included); instead it positions the card game as a metaphor for life. It is the first book ever to show how to use proven poker strategies to win at ALL aspects of life...even if you ve never shuffled a deck of cards. Leikind observes, Inside EVERY woman is a PokerWoman waiting to be unleashed. With PokerWoman gracing the shelves, it seems as if the whole world will be standing alongside the poker enthusiasts. You see, this book isn't about winning at poker it's about winning at work, love, and life through poker. Leikind's philosophy hinges on the idea that there are huge similarities between the game of poker and the game of life. PokerWoman encourages women to overcome their fear, find their own voice and learn to speak out. -Completepokerrules.com
