420420 Magazine reviews Huntington Press’ Reefer Gladness, written by Michael Konik.

 

August 13, 2014

Judging the book by it’s black and white cover and spartan artwork, I braced myself for a tedious read…….I was hooked on page 4

…Whether you’ve smoked once or twice in college, or if you’ve smoked once or twice this morning, you’ll find you can “totally relate” to this book. This guy gets it, for sure. One page will have you recalling your first encounters with weed, women, wine…..the next page will have you laughing at and relating to stories about the munchies.

The Moneymaker Effect…effect?

Posted in Print/Online on August 12th, 2014 by admin – Comments Off

pokerstars-logoChris Moneymaker, the man and legend himself, reviews Huntington Press’ The Moneymaker Effect, written by Eric Raskin, and the effect it had on poker as a whole.

August 12, 2014

It’s pretty interesting to read what others have to say about that year — about my play, about the tournament in general, about everything that was going on with Binion’s, and everything else.
..the whole dynamic between Sam and myself, being so different — basically polar opposites — made things fun, too. Sam was definitely the Vegas grinder, the typical pro, and people didn’t know as much about poker back then which made his personality even more interesting.

Book Review: The Moneymaker Effect (Author — Eric Raskin)

Posted in Online on August 8th, 2014 by admin – Comments Off

NolanDallaLogoWSOP.com Senior Writer and longtime Media Director of the World Series of Poker, Nolan Dalla, reviews Huntington Press’ The Moneymaker Effect, by Eric Raskin, on NolanDalla.com.

Aug. 7, 2014
“Even with the talented veteran freelance writer Eric Raskin doing all the research and organizing the narrative, I skeptically wondered what new territory could possibly be uncovered on an all-too familiar subject known to just about anyone who’s played a hand of poker within the past decade…
“Raskin’s genius comes in the clever layout of the subject matter and easy-to-digest presentation of material which is far more comprehensive than anything previously released.  The same story gets retold again, of course,  but from angles which are at times strikingly different.”

July 31, 2013

From start to finish, The Moneymaker Effect delivered and was chalk full of new information and engaging perspectives.

It sounds cliché to say something is an instant classic, but that’s exactly how I felt after reading this book. The art of the oral history is in the weave, and Raskin proved to be an expert weaver of a poker narrative. I actually had the chance to sit down with Raskin to ask him some questions about his book:

Book Review: My Week at the Blue Angel

Posted in Online on July 30th, 2014 by admin – Comments Off

 

nevadareview“Nevada Book Review” gives My Week at the Blue Angel, published by Huntington Press, a glowing review. This nonfiction book was written by Matthew O’Brien, who is also the author of Beneath the Neon, another Huntington Press book.

March 8, 2011

O’Brien effectively provides another glimpse into the lives of the people that live in Las Vegas, but are not privy to the glamour of the Strip.  These are the people who are lost, who have lost something, and are dreaming of the day when they might want to go find it or themselves again.

At times My Week at the Blue Angel tells these stories sympathetically and with compelling conviction, and at times it really shines.

gelfElliot Magruder with Gelf Magazine reviews Eric Raskin’s The Moneymaker Effect published by Huntington Press. This article also includes an exclusive interview with the author himself.

June 11, 2014

A pudgy 27-year-old accountant who qualified via an Internet tournament that cost $40 to enter, deftly weaved his way through a field of 800, many of them seasoned poker pros. En route to a $2.5-million payday, Moneymaker eliminated giants of the game such as Johnny Chan and Phil Ivey.
…Poker has never been the same since, and Moneymaker’s win is largely responsible for the subsequent explosion in popularity.
