Have you seen/used the iPad app of this book? Really cool
But I would not necessarily recommend it for someone starting out.
I also have Little's stuff - I like it but his writing "style" is pretty bad - not grammatically, but he just pours stuff out via his own stream of consciousness (and he is aware of that). It is not very well organized so the reader has to work that much harder. Volume 2 actually goes backwards and has very remedial stuff instead of building upon Vol 1. But i would recommend Vol 1.
Yeah Jon does a good job, I've followed him in the poker world when he first came on the scene and try to keep up with how he is doing. Good point and I probably should have noted it's definitely not a set of books for someone first starting out. Need a little general knowledge so you can understand and comprehend the vocabulary they are using. Very informative books though and was a big fan of the style they used in writing them.
If a beginner wants an easy read to pass the time and read about a little poker while maybe picking up a new things, this was the first book I read. Yep I was a Lindgren fan but man did that guy prove to be one big douchebag. Still a decent read for the beginner's and if I remember correctly there are some interesting tourney ideas/strategies in there from Erick that aren't exactly accepted on a wider scale in the poker world as optimal plays.
