Format: Paperback
I have purchased three of these books by Malmuth/Loomis: "Fundamentals of Video Poker," "Fundamentals of Blackjack," and "Fundamentals of Poker." These books are remarkable because they are such slender, unassuming volumes. If you play poker at anything less than the professional level, you should add this book to your library. It covers Hold 'em, Seven Stud, and Omaha as well as variations of these games. The discussion of how to play the games are brief and concise. The strategy sections are fundamental, yet powerful. There's not a lot of fat here, just clear writing and practical tips. This book will not make you a world class player, but will give you a solid foundation on which to build a serious and sucessful study of the game. Buy this book.

This is aimed at the novice, and gives quite a lot of good insight into how to play the game, but some of its advice is stated baldly and the reasoning is not explained. Half-way through the book it descends into jargon which has not been introduced, and takes some working out. Also, it is marred by some poor formatting. For example, the text often refers to a "hand like this", but instead of the picture of the hand of cards it is referring to coming next, the text confusingly runs straight into the following section. The picture then appears quite a bit further on, often on a later page, making the text difficult to read. It's a pity that something as straightforward as formatting can't be got right.
That said, the book is good value for money, and is a worthwhile read for a novice.

Format: Paperback
Being an avid poker player I like to digest as much written material on the subject as possible, as the title suggests this is certainly the "Fundamental" I would certainly recommend this book to anyone who has just started playing or is wanting to play, but for the more experienced player there is very little information to be gleaned.
