Hello.
An interesting list. Have you read these books that you recommend to others?
If so, which of these books was most useful to you and what were the benefits?

All of these were published before or during the poker boom. Are they still relevant in today's poker environment?

Cool list; I've heard some good things, but the only book I've read in this list is Power Hold' em - Daniel Negreanu.

I think it depends on what you would like to get out of your reading "study" and what level your game of poker is at; I'd recommend a different book to someone learning the rules of poker compared to a professional high stakes poker player :D

For instance, the Negreanu book mentioned is a great book, but his "small ball" is surely a strategy geared more for the advanced player with post-flop ability (and perhaps good hand reading skills too).

For a complete beginner, I'd recommend "Play Poker Like The Pros" (Hellmuth) and for the more advanced, I'd recommend some other books. "Excelling At No Limit Hold 'em" (Little) is one such book that is great, but more for advanced players (doesn't need to be professional or anything, but at least someone willing to put in the work and doesn't mind navigating range charts and similar).

Whatever book(s) to go with, good luck with the poker journey :)
