You mean "The Theory of Poker"? Overall, a great book. Some consider it the "bible" of poker. But here's some things I learned about the book the hard way:
- It uses a lot of Stud and Draw poker in examples. I'd say hold'em is mentioned only half the time or so.
- It reads very much like a college textbook. Harsh text that is tiring on the eyes. Scientific tone to its teachings make it sometimes necessary to re-read portions immediately.
I actually got more out of Sklansky's "Small Stakes Hold'em". It mostly deals with Fixed Limit hold'em, but the concepts on figuring odds
, etc. still apply to NLHE. An easier read, IMO.
Just my opinion and others may disagree with it.
