Talkin' About Poker: Straight Talk for Parents and their Players
Author: Loren Ackerman, Christopher Ackerman
A teacher of gifted education by trade, penned Talkin' About Poker: Straight Talk for Parents and their Players in order to aide in the vital link between concerned parents and young, hopeful poker players. "Initially, we thought our son was headed down a path of destruction, and we simply didn't know what to do and I was terrified," she said. "It was my fear of him becoming addicted that led me to learn everything there is to know about poker, so I could communicate with my son intelligently and in a way he would not find threatening." Over the next few years Loren and her family learned about Texas Hold 'Em, experienced the ebbs and flows of the finances of the game, and rode the roller-coaster of emotions as her son went deeper into the game. Loren journaled her experiences, spoke with experts, and researched the poker phenomena and compiled her insights into this interesting new book.
