Amy Calistri to co-write Mike's book
Well known poker journalist Amy Calistri will be co-writing a book about Mike Matusow. She wasn't quite ready to let the cat out of the bag but Mike announced it to everyone withing hearing distance the other day so she felt the need to confirm it. Here's what Amy said on her personal blog about the opportunity to work with Mike.
When Mike was sentenced on drug related charges back in 2004, I was one of the first people his attorney called from the Courthouse. There are a lot of pros that people want to read about, because they have become ”poker famous.” But Mike has a story; it is hysterically funny, heartbreaking, frustrating, and awe inspiring. During the book interviews, Mike has been articulate and focussed. And like Mike is - he exposes his strengths and his flaws with unflinching candor. Dr. Tim Lavalli (aka the Poker Shrink) and I signed our agreement with Mike last week and we are both incredibly enthusiastic about the potential for this book.
