"Like poker, life is a game, and Ellen Leikind makes that connection come to life in an informative and entertaining must-read. These are lessons to share with your girlfriends, your sisters, and your daughters. Then break out that deck of cards and go all in!"
     -Melissa Meyers


"Forget golf! For women, the new way to the board room is Texas Hold ‘Em. The skills you learn at the poker table—strategy, bluffing, risk evaluation and maintaining that good old poker face—make you a better executive. And did I mention that you’re having fun too?"
     -Jane Bryant Quinn
     Author of Smart and Simple Financial Strategies for Busy People


"This is an entertaining and enlightening book. And dangerous. Take the title seriously! PokerWoman was written to give women an advantage in virtually every area of life, from poker to business to personal relationships — which is the reason why every male and female poker player, and non-poker player should read it. Ellen Leikind analyzes the games of poker and life in a straight-forward manner, with many examples, to make the lessons easy to apply.  Read this book, if only in self-defense."
