"Scrolling the pages of a Hughes narrative is like lighting a lantern into the darkest recess of poker's subculture. [Hughes] brings the legends of the past and present to life and often provides the very best portrait of these unique, real-life characters of anyone on record."
-Nolan Dalla, media director, World Series of Poker, best-selling author and columnist for Card Player
"Johnny Hughes's poker stories are a national treasure . hilarious stories and colorful characters . timeless classics . the stuff of history . one of my all-time favorite poker writers."
-Iggy, a.k.a. Ignatius J. Reilly, the Blogfather of Poker, GuinnessandPoker.com
"Told with authenticity and the knowledge that only a true road gambler could possess . a book that you will love . a highly enjoyable read."
-Anthony Kelly, editor-in-chief, Player Europe magazine. Dublin.
"Cryptic, dark. Irrefutably unique. Elliptical euphemism and metaphor are (Hughes's) tools. Gambling folklore and parables abound. All told with a twinkle in the eye and one finger on the trigger ... Johnny writes evasively, challenging us to refute, compelling us to believe."
-James Dodd, a.k.a. Tetuso, Bet-the-Pot.com. London.
I’m a Johnny Hughes fan... he has a truly unique style… Hughes’ style is hard (like the man had to be) … These men remember a time when poker wasn’t so much glitz and glamour, when the cameras and lights were substituted for by cigars and guns. It feels a lot safer the way we do it now, but you have to admit there’s a romance to what once was."
Gary Wise. Poker Historian. Bluff Magazine, ESPN.com, Wisehandpoker.com.
