If you want to know all math behind Hold'em, from probability point of view, this is the source. It is not a classical strategy book (maybe many more recommendations for particular hands would be useful), but it really covers all gaming situations in Hold'em. No book I read thus far has such well organized coverage on odds and probability. Holding in one hand a good strategy book and in the other this odds book, you will probably win a lot during time. I recommend it instead of any odds calculator, because you will see here the applied formulas and you will be able to learn and apply the probability calculus for any particular hand or for other poker games.
I have no great math skills but after reading this book in conjunction with some texts on Probability I have a good understanding of it. I was not only interested in the numerical results, but also in how to calculate them. Until now, I used to calculate the card odds by myself. After reading the book, I realized that most of my calculations was wrong. Probabilities are not that simple as they look. I even not look at odds tables posted on web anymore, because I don't know how they reached those results. Anyway, this is the most complete source of odds. I highly recommend the book to every Hold'em player!
