Now a major motion picture, written and directed by Aaron Sorkin and starring Jessica Chastain, Idris Elba, Kevin Costner, and Michael Cera-the true story of "Hollywood's poker princess" who gambled everything, won big, then lost it all. Molly Bloom reveals how she built one of the most exclusive, high-stakes underground poker games in the world-an insider's story of excess and danger, glamour and greed. In the late 2000s, Molly Bloom, a twentysomething petite brunette from Loveland Colorado, ran the highest stakes, most exclusive poker game Hollywood had ever seen-she was its mistress, its lion tamer, its agent, and its oxygen. Everyone wanted in, few were invited to play. Hundreds of millions of dollars were won and lost at her table. Molly's game became the game for those in the know-celebrities, business moguls, and millionaires. Molly staged her games in palatial suites with beautiful views and exquisite amenities. She flew privately, dined at exclusive restaurants, hobnobbed with the heads of Hollywood studios, was courted by handsome leading men, and was privy to the world's most delicious gossip, until it all came crashing down around her. Molly's Game is a behind the scenes look at Molly's game, the life she created, the life she lost, and what she learned in the process.

Molly Bloom was a brave and daring skier from Colorado. With probably more guts than brains.

Her exposure to the rich and famous and her eventual arrest are the high and low points of her life up to this point. She is fortunate not to have been killed.

Her book is well-written and it keeps the reader wanting to learn more. I hope she will write another book in about twenty years after she has served her time in prison and has matured more in life. She is saying she would do this all over again but I'm thinking some prison time will change all that.

This book perfectly explains how there is no way to get rich quick and live a quality life at the same time. She was owned by this insanity and she will have this following her for the rest of her life.

Did her father push her too hard to be successful? I'll keep my opinion on that to myself and let the other readers decide.
