The Shark and the Fish: Applying Poker Strategies to Business Leadership

Swayne, Charley

  • Use poker strategy to become a better decision maker

    In high–stakes poker, you need patience and aggression — qualities that translate to the world of business. In The Shark and the Fish, Charley Swayne applies winning poker strategies to decision–making and leadership.

    Learn how to:
    • avoid losing control and going on tilt,
    • turn losses into lessons,
    • perfect the art of negotiating a deal,
    • understand the stakes and your financial limitations,
    • evaluate your opponents, and assess what they know about you,
    • read risk and reward — should you bid, bluff, or fold?

    In this unique strategy book, Charley Swayne teaches you how to be the shark at the boardroom table, not the fish.
