Being able to read other player's body language is very important in poker. Until recently, Mike Caro's book was the only book available on the subject. Now there are numerous books on poker tells, and this book is by far and away the best of the bunch. The book is very detailed and describes a lot of different tells. The book also expalins which tells are more useful, and how different tells put together can give one a better read on one's foe. It has a lot of unique tells not featured in other books. It also tells the reader how to disguise one's own tells, which is also very important. The book could have used some charts to summarize the information better, and it could also have had some practice examples to help one put the tells to good use. Finally, the book did have some tells that are sort of obvious, but its better to be safe than sorry. Besides these defects, the book was very helpful and informative. It took Mike Caro's book to a whole new level. I recommend it to anyone serious about poker, especially tournament no-limit. In closing, I would be suprised if the previous reviewer actually read the book. He's right that Hellmuth's Play Like the Pros isn't very good, but this book has little to do with Phil Hellmuth. Hellmuth only writes the preface and a couple of examples from his own experience. It's not really a 'phil hellmuth' book.In sum, This book is THE book on poker tells, period.

This is a very interesting book especially for avid poker players. It is the type of book that the more times you read it the more info you get from it. "Tells" are an important part of playing poker so read, read, read and learn.

This is a good, comprehensive book on the value of reading your opponents at the poker table and how to pick up on tells. After reading it, I went straight to a cash game and was amazed by the amount of accurate information this book laid out. Sometimes you have to coax that information out by talking to a player who has just made a move on you, but if/when they respond they typically do one, if not more of the telling things highlighted in this book. If you want to get better, I recommend reading it sooner rather than later. *full disclosure-- i lost money at the cash game. But I believe that was because I focused more on the high confidence tells than the low ones. So I knew when I was beat and able to fold quickly, but when we were both in the hunt it wasn't as easy to spot. Which means, I'm reading this book again.

This is a great book written by a former FBI agent who used in his career the same skills that we use at the poker table to decipher the truth. It gives you very no nonsense tools to use to figure out the strength of your opponent's hand, and why it is almost impossible to disguise some of these tells as it is deeply rooted in our basic survival mechanisms. THe only problem with the book is that you can't recommend it to your friends lest they use the newfound information against you next Friday night. Buy this book, unless that is you are in MY Friday night game...in that case pass on it.

This is another one of Phil's terrible poker books. There is nothing useful in this book that will help you in a real game. Don't waste your money. I have 4 of his books and they are full of useless stories about his favorite poker player, himself. The only book that mentions Phil that is worth reading is listed below.
