James McManus rose to poker stardom after his improbable run to the 2000 World Series of Poker final table, where he eventually bowed out in 5th place, which he splendidly recounted in his best-selling book Positively Fifth Street published in 2003. McManus has continued to be a presence in the poker world, playing in the World Series of Poker every year since, but it wasn’t until 2009 that the poker world was treated to his second poker tome, Cowboys Full: The Story of Poker.

In Cowboys Full McManus traces the origins of poker back to its roots, and how a conglomeration of different card-games morphed into the game we recognize today. Cowboys Full reads as a living history of poker, featuring facts, tidbits, and some of the most remarkable and entertaining tales poker has to offer.

At nearly 500 pages of text Cowboys Full is the definitive history of poker, and the scope of the challenge undertaken by McManus can be seen in the 50+ pages of end-notes! Well-researched, well-written, and told by a man who loves the game of poker, Cowboys Full is a must-read for any fan of the game, or any fan of history.

Cowboys Full will be released as a paperback on September 28th 2010, and can be purchased through Amazon.com –the official release date for Cowboys Full is October 4th.
