In Leadership: Texas
Hold 'em Style, card playing, and specifically poker, is used as a
metaphor to examine the art and science of leadership. While you may learn
something about card playing, the book is not about card games. Some people
have strong negative reactions to card playing. On the other hand, the authors
see cards and card playing as a social activity that crosses economic, social
and cultural boundaries. Other games, like chess might be used in a similar
manner, but they probably wouldn't have the wide appeal of cards (there are 2.2
million references to Chess Playing on the Internet and 126 million to Card
Leadership: Texas Hold 'em
Style has now added to the 126 million references to Card Playing. And,
inherent in the game is wagering. The authors don't encourage commercial gaming
or gambling but recognize it's wide spread appeal and the associated problems.
We have added to following two links as well as the special disclaimer. If you,
