I really enjoyed it.

As my bleary eyes adjusted to the white light that seemed in abundance everywhere around me, I gazed out over the beautiful snowy landscape, and over the busy street that was about 15 yards in front of me.
The snow on the side of the road in front of me was still about a foot deep, lying in half-melted icy piles. Because it had been overcast all day, I was surprised to find that the sun was out at all, much less out in full force.
Out of nowhere, it seemed, I woke from my odd life and was shocked to realize where I was, and what I was doing. Did the vast amount of light symbolize, to me, that I was falling slowly back into darkness?
Why was I here? What was I doing with my life? Jarringly, I realized that I was in a bar having a drink, after I had smoked pot: Perhaps you have heard that song by Talking Heads, Once in a Lifetime? I made some excuses to Gary and Larry, called a taxi, and got out of there, fast. The moment that I arrived at my nice new University Avenue apartment, which I had moved into a few months before, I sat down at my desk, pulled out some pen and paper, and pondered what, exactly, I was going to do with my life.
Okay, I loved poker, and was good at it, but if I was going to continue playing, then I might as well work toward becoming a great player, maybe the best poker player in the world.
I would dedicate myself to learning how to improve my poker tactics, to learn how to play consistently at a world-class level, and to learn modestly enough what it would take to become the best poker player in the world. I would then do what I needed to do to reach that level.
When he talks to me, I switch off. I go all Walter Mitty; only I am not skateboarding down an Icelandic road. Watching the world go by through the eyes of the Jungle must be a fascinating experience.
I want to know how he managed to create one of the largest stables in the world, and completely screw it up, losing millions in the process. Fortunately, there was a happy ending for Moorman.
He met a woman, and she sorted him out like all women do. Seriously, just retire and play online from your little island. He must be one of the only people in the world who you could kick in the balls, and he would smile at you. It shocked my morality to the core. What I would have given to be a fly on the wall during that conversation. So, those are my picks for autobiographies. Chris Moorman has beaten me to the punch and will be at Aspers in Stratford this weekend where he will be talking to the press about his new book.
