    Excellent all around hold'em guide.

    Great book for players looking to graduate from the beginner level. Introduces concepts with sound advice and logic on key aspects of hold'em. Probably the best charts on mathematical analysis I've found to date. Good tool to start with provided it is used with another low limit hold'em book. Book is short but filled with useful information for anything related to hold'em (including suggestions for books to look into after this one). Excellent value if used for the charts and resources alone.
