Those are all the same book just different printed copies. The first one is the most recent, I think, so I'd say that one.

It's a good book. I've read it three times.
A few weeks ago I went to a three-table tournament run by my friend's family. I won it, but I can flat out say that I would not have if it wasn't for that book. Some of the tells are incredibly valuable.
I guess I should also mention that I got knowd out of one tournament because of that book. A guy did a "that flop didn't help me" tell so I shoved (short stacked) with second pair and he called. Ends up he had pocket Aces. Doh!

It is a very good book, I own a copy and refer to it often. The only thing I would caution here is that you have to take into account a lot of other people have read that book (as well as the countless other books and articles about poker tells). Just be careful not to fall into the "he's giving off false tells" trap.

I got a copy of it but the pictures are like from the 70s. Still, I think it is worthwhile to try to learn something that you may not have been aware of before. Like one other said, though, lots of people have read it and throw "false tells" out there.

If you want to get a book on tells I'd also suggest Joe Navarro's book called:
Read 'em and reap.
I haven't read either book but I've heard Navarro interviewed several times and I think his book would be rather good.
