"Joe Christian has written the ultimate guide to become a Do-It-Yourself investor. With excellent storytelling and powerful insights, you won't be able to put this book down."

"In Investing with a Full Deck, Joe demonstrates an insightful understanding of the human psyche that unblurs the lines between the world of money management and the poker table. There are the investor and the gambler, the patient and the anxious, the stoic and the emotional-all distinguishing traits that separate the winners from the losers. I have hired successful poker players as money managers, and I have witnessed many retired hedge fund managers go on to become successful poker players. There is often genius in simplicity, and this book is just that. The reader is furnished with the step-by-step guidance necessary to win the 'game' of achieving financial independence. A fascinating read."
