Vorhaus is probably the most talented writer in the poker genre, which makes him, and particularly this book, very fun to read. More importantly, however, he covers the subjects most knowledgeable, but struggling players need to learn. By "knowledgeable", I mean we have read a few books, played a few years or more, and know a few tricks of the trade. If you have played very little poker and/or are still new to the game, then go ahead and read the basic strategy books and learn starting hand requirements, odds, how to play a drawing hand, etc. (there are about 14 million of them now to choose from)...but after you play awhile and feel you have hit the glass ceiling in your results, or maybe even getting worse, then read this book.

This is not to say that there is no playing strategy. Luckily, by simplifying starting hand selection with his "absolut" and "small card poison" ideas, my own play online has improved very noticeably. He has also simplified understanding of the odds so that you can use your mind for playing instead of computing. He provides many excercises that you can use no matter what methods you currently follow that WILL improve your game. This of course pertains to players that may need to improve their game. If I...
This is the worst book I have ever read about poker,and I have more than 20.This is not a book for serious poker player at all,it may teach some compulsive gamblers how to reduce their losses but nothing more.I paid $4 for it and I regret for buying it,don't waste your money.(I am not surprised that used copy of it goes for $1+shipping)
