Yes... what he ^ said!!
Super System at the time it was written was the best book out there.
I've read both volumes and personally don't like them.
I'm also curious as to who the 'everyone' is??
note - SuperSystem doesn't come close to making my Top10 poker books
list (not by a longshot).
As far as which books I consider to be better.... 'lots/many'. As far as listing them goes.... 'it depends' - - it depends upon what type of book you're suggesting (ie. playing low limit cash table NLHE, SNG strategy, NLHE MTT, high stakes cash game NLHE, live play, etc.).
My favourite MTT NLHE book by far is "Winning Poker Tournaments - One Hand At A Time".
My most recommended book(s) to read for NLHE MTT would be "Harrington On Holdem Vol. 1 & Vol.2"
