well its the 50 poker tips of wisdom by daniel negranuea....so far its a little bit better than the other books which talk about the top ten hands to play and what to bet.......its more like tips and little things you can do to pretty much play like daniel does....stuff about table talk and stuff like that but most of it is for begginers or novices.

That book looks good, plus negreanu is awesome, Is it worth buying in the same way the harrington books were?

No, not in the same way. The DN book is really pretty basic (as the "Tips" title might suggest).

so its probably not that much actual use then, no doubt the tips will be regurgitated on the internet somewhere. I have read the harringtons, SSII and play poker like the pro's. I also purchased the Micon system II and Micon Secrets (both of which are pretty good) What should I look into next?

I have yet to read Phil Gordon's Little Blue Book, but its sitting here on my poker table. I am not a big fan of phil gordon, but maybe reading his book might change my views on him as a poker player

Both the Green and Blue book are good. Gordon writes well, so he gets his points across nicely. Green book is pretty comprehensive, but consequently on the more general side. That being said, it was the first and only book I had my wife read on NL. Blue book is play by play of hands.
Both are recommended.

If you don't want to go that route, I recommend the "Killer Poker" series (all of them) by Vorhaus.
