Andrew’s new release pick of the day: THE NOBLE HUSTLE by Colson Whitehead 
“Colson Whitehead’s latest is the darkly humorous tale of him joining the World Series of Poker (WSOP) after a lifetime of playing $5 buy in games with friends. Poker fans will love this book; it’s a great rundown of all the subcultures that are involved in tournament play from the old timers to the internet trained robotic kids. Non-poker fans will love it for the same reasons. It’s hilarious, it’s insightful, and it’s written with beautiful prose. I highly recommend this to anyone with even the slightest interest in poker.”
