  A book that has been deeply influential as I have developed Women Willpower, Thinking In Bets, was written by a powerful woman on the poker playing scene. Annie Duke is the only woman to win the WSOP Tournament of Champions and the NBC National Heads-Up Poker Championship. She is now a corporate speaker and consultant on decision making strategy merging her poker experience and her graduate-level research in psychology at the University of Pennsylvania. By the way the link above is an affiliate link, which means  Women Willpower will earn a commission if you do end up purchasing the book.
