One of the most common answers to 'what are good poker books to read?' is Dan Harrington's work. I'm yet to read his books myself but i believe they are supposed to be very good indeed.

Be sure to read Chris Moorman when you're finished with Harrington

I will definitely do that, what makes you recommend Moorman after Harrington?

I guess because Moorman is one of the most succesfull on-line tournament players alltime.
Besides, Moorman's book is from much more recent date.
Haven't read it myself though.
Harrington's books might show you some strategy and basics of the game, but in nowadays online tournaments you really have to adapt to more agressive opponents/play.

Harrington's books are very outdated. You can learn some good basic strategies, but you'd be better off spending your time reading more recent books (as noted ITT) or watching videos at a good training site from some of the top online players.

For tournament poker, they are very good. I particularly enjoy the third book which basically lays out hundreds of scenarios and why a particular move is the best option.

Thanks you for the suggestion, what I will do, is read Harringtons books to get the strategy and basis of tournament and then I will read Moorman's books for in depth analysis, what books of Moorman's would you recommend?

Yes, outdated, but for the overall development and for understanding how the some oldschool players can play you must read this book IMHO. In a Harrington's book there is a outdated information, but included and subtleties of the game, which are working and to this day.
