I really should do some sort of advertising-like sales pitch.  But I included the Dedication and Introduction and a copy of the Table of Contents, so I'm not sure what more to say.  If you don't know when you should fold A23, or when you have fewer outs but more equity, or that Sklansky's 5th street declaration about what hand is definitely ahead is just wrong, well, then there's stuff inside the book that's going to be worth at least $5 to you if you play a lot of Razz.  I've written about and taught a lot of things in my life, but this is the first time I wrote something this complex and informational, a teaching kind of thing, that included a lot of my personal experiences, like hands and so forth.  It seems pretty self-aggrandizing.  But, what I wanted to accomplish was to stop talking on forums very much and just let people have as much good information on the game as I could provide at a very low price with easy accessibility.  So I did that. Don't know what else to say. Here's a reduced screenshot of a partial page/chapter from inside just so you have an idea what it looks like:
