Author James McManus came to Las Vegas a few years ago to cover the World Series of Poker but got a real close-up view because he made the final table. He's back with a new book on poker and the meaning of American life. It's called Cowboys Full: The Story of Poker. McManus joins us to explain why poker is more than just a game. He thinks it embodies the spirit of America.
