So the newly formed Discordian Book Club
has selected POKER WITHOUT CARDS
as our book of the month. But instead of a month, we're going to do it in TWO WEEKS! (July 12th - July 25th)
So I printed this bad boy out and got lost in it for like two hours. I am really
liking Poker Without Cards so far.
My initial impression - is that the author and I have very similar reading lists.
This might be a bit more effective on me if I hadn't read so much of it already. He covers a lot of the same ground as Illuminatus, the Art of Memetics, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenence, etc
The author (Ben Mack) uses a lot of very terse, effective language to describe really complex ideas. Later, I'll probably come back to look up how he phrased things when re-explaining them to people.
what do you guys think so far?
