For now, Maria Konnikova's book is ranked third in the «Best Sellers in Poker» category on Amazon. The success of Maria's work can be explained by the fact that the book has been written for a wider audience who will understand its basic tenets.
This book tells about how poker can teach you to make important decisions in life. «The Biggest Bluff» can’t be listed among educational poker literature, so you will not play like Daniel Negreanu or Phil Ivey upon reading it.

Maria Konnikova is not the only member of the poker community, whose books are popular and sell well. It’s worth mentioning Bill Perkins and his book called «Die With Zero».
In this book, Bill reveals to us some of his ideas, saying that one cannot bring wealth to kingdom come. The success of «Die With Zero» was noted by WSJ. Magazine. It was ranked second on the bestseller list for business books.
