James McManus: The Story of Poker
You may think you know when to hold 'em, when to fold 'em, and even when Neil Patrick Harris should go "all in" on Celebrity Poker Showdownbut what about the real story of poker? Author, memoirist and inveterate poker player James McManus knows it all, from the game's roots in China to its status as a globaland yet quintessentially Americanphenomenon. Best known for writing on the game in his bestselling Positively Fifth Street (2001), McManus has long-explored the ways poker reverberates with our battlefield and business tactics: cheating and thwarting cheaters, leveraging uncertainty, bluffing and sussing out bluffers, and managing risk and reward. In his latest book, Cowboys Full, McManus says poker goes hand in hand with our national experience, reflecting who we are and how we operate through its pervasive cultural influence. Presented by Town Hall, with University Book Store.
