    Pretty Sweet and Cool

    This book is pretty sweet and cool. There is a lot of good stuff in it. Mostly it's not bad. But some of it is bad.

    Great for the Novice

    This book is a much easier (and laid back) read than one of 'the classics'. In particular, the section on odds and probablity is much clearer than S&M and the 'test your skills' sections are more infomative than S&M's hand quizs. Don't let the cheezy cover fool you, this is an excellent read.

    A very good

    I thought the poker advice in Hilger's book was excellent, and while I agree that there is not much here that you can't find in other Texas hold'em books, the writing style is very clear and concise (which is not always the case -- good poker players don't always make good poker authors, but Hilger is an exception). I do agree with another poster's advice to find sign-up bonus codes when you open accounts at the major sites as the book talks about -- pokercroaker.com keeps their codes updated fairly frequently. Overall, it was an enjoyable read that I felt helped my poker game. Before tackling higher limit games, though, I think additional reading, perhaps Sklansky books, would be prudent.

    Not a bad read, but wish there was more NEW strategy information

    I was somewhat disappointed by this book, not because the advice was poor, but rather simply because I don¿t think it added too much to the existing poker literature¿the book bills itself as a guide to helping you beat the internet poker games, but most of the advice is simply generic poker strategy advice (and if that¿s all you¿re looking for, there are certainly more accomplished authors, i.e. sklansky, malmuth, jones) to look to first. I also think the book could and should have devoted more time to the very real differences between the internet games and live casino play. The recent surge in poker¿s popularity has led to a HUGE influx of very poor players into the online poker sites, and I think the author could have taken some time to explain strategy variations that are effective in the different style of play you find online ¿ if you do open an account online, though, search around for a sign-up bonus code to use when you sign up ¿ another post here led me to pokercroaker.com, who keeps theirs updated fairly frequently. That being said, the advice is fairly sound, and written in an easy-to-understand style ¿ just not all that much different than can be found in more popular books, by the authors mentioned above.

    Great Poker Book

    This is a great poker book. I purchased it a while back, after I started playing and not fairing well. I had read the reviews on it and thought I would give it a shot. One review I read said something to the effect that the book paid for itself in the first week. I knew that wouldn't happen to me as it would take more than a week for me to read it...slow reader. However, since reading the book I have not been losing but winning. This book is an easy read for anyone interested in Texas Hold'em...either on the internet or live games. It is geared specifically toward on-line poker but is very applicable to live games as I haven't lost a live game since getting it. I would highly recommend this book. Easy reading and very helpful, especially the 'Test Your Skills' sections and 'Chapter Review' sections.

    One of the best Hold 'Em Books Available

    If I had only one Hold 'Em book I could buy this would be it. Even though it is geared towards online games, all of the information is transferable to live play. The charts are easy to follow and provide an excellent set of starting hands based on table position. Also, provides numerous sample hands. There isn't a Hold 'Em player out there who wouldn't benefit by owning this book. It will pay for itself.

    The Charts Alone Are Worth the Investment

    You have heard the adage 'I taught him everything he knows?' Yes I am his ole man, but my game got much better just because I clipped out some of those charts that tells you exactly what to do after the flop or the turn. Follow the advice and you will be a winner much more often!

    Great book

    This book is much like a textbook with a chapter summary and hand examples. I found his approach to be very easy to understand, although it will probably take several readings to absorb all of the material. The book has already paid for itself in one week.

    Classic poker book

    I've read many poker books and I believe this one will become a classic. As a Hold'em book, the topics are very well organized and easy to read. And unlike other poker books, there are lots of hand examples to help you learn the concepts presented in each chapter. This book can help both beginning and advanced players. The book is also very useful for players trying to make the adjustment from the casino to the internet. Highly recommended.
