Good poker books depend on what type of player you are/ want to be. Super System by Doyle Brunson, and a lot of other professionals is a good all around book. Sklansky's Hold'em for the advanced player is a modern day scientific approach to poker. Caros' book on Poker Tells is good for otb games.

Sylvester Suzuki's Poker Tournament Strategies is a great book for a beginner.

I enjoyed reading Mike Caros Book of Tells. That book has so much insight and saved me a lot of money at the live tables. The book pays for itself so I suggest everbody goes out and buys it!

good book

i agree with ace and m60... that was one of the first books i read and i have heard that the second one is even better. i would definately recommend this. i also bought lederer's hold em secrets on dvd. it was a lot of help and he really explains things well. he also shows you where in position to play your hands. i still watch it as a refresher course every now and then.

I'm reading Brunson's Suuper System book, but that might not be good for a begginer.

the first book i read was sklansky's no limit hold em. Everything i read after that didn't add too much to my game. It depends on your playing/learning style. Sklansky offers clear cut odds, which is great for me.

Lee Jones, Winning at Low Limit Poker 3rd Edition is one of the better books out there not only for beginners, but any low limit player. The last edition covers the S&G tourney.

For the beginer player I would suggest two.   The first in Dan Harrington's "Hold'em Strategy for No Limit Tournaments."  The second one is David Sklanski's "The Theroy of Poker."

That's good news on the Harrington book as I just asked for this as part of my Christmas list!  Wahoo...looking forward to reading this and checking it out.

Cheers and Happy Holidays.
