Doesn't seem right to have a thread about books without AlienGenius posting in it - I miss him!

You can say what is best for you, but it would be wrong to assume that what works best for you is automatically what will work best for everyone else.
I read Doyle Brunson's Super System, and found that his techniques weren't really TAG enough for me in online play, although some of his tricks worked well for me in live play.
Phil Gordon's Little Green Book has given me a mental set of rules to apply to all hands, as well as various refinements such as betting between 2 to 4 times the big blind - depending on position - when raising. So it is the most useful book so far for me, out of the two that I have tried, but I am still very much a beginner at poker.
