Product Reviews
Jerry Yang was flipping through the channels one evening in 2005 when he stumbled upon the World Series of Poker on ESPN. Having never seen or played the game before, he was instantly hooked. Two years later, Jerry won $8.2 million at the WSOP. An amateur player winning the sport's most prestigious event makes headlines, but Yang's story placed him at the forefront of media attention. Having survived a childhood in the killing fields of Southeast Asia and a Thai refugee camp, Yang found academic and personal success in the slums of Nashville, Kansas City, and Fresno. When Jerry watched poker for the first time, he promised his wife when he won the WSOP championship he'd use the money for good - and he did just that, giving over $800,000 to charities benefitting children around the world. "All In' dramatically intertwines Jerry's amazing life with the key poker hands from the 2007 WSOP. The two work together in this page-turning true story that will leave you cheering as Jerry overcomes impossible odds to become a champion in poker.... and in life. 323 Pages Hardbound 2011
