I've enjoyed Lou's articles in many magazines, so decided to give this book a try, even though I wondered if it would add anything to my library of more advanced poker books. I'm pleased to say that it did - not necessarily just because of the content, but in the way he simply, but effectively, gets a lot of fundamental points across, so you remember them. The 52 tip format (one a week) is obviously perfect for future syndication purposes, but it also has the benefit of allowing you to dip into a particular tip from time to time when a reminder is needed.

The book is pitched at the intermediate player. Although it initially tries to get the beginner on-board in the first few pages, I think the strength is for those 'reasonable' players who want to improve their game another notch or two. At no stage will you necessarily find the depth of strategic analysis that some books have - but it's not meant to be comprehensive in that way. The tips are snappy and stay in the mind, and the common sense in Lou's approach to poker and his easy writing style makes you feel you've got him as a personal tutor for a few minutes looking over your shoulder.

He covers everything from betting, raising, pre-flop starting requirements, pot odds, drawing, tells etc. and I particularly liked it when he is realistic about when you stay in a hand. All too often the new breed of aggressive-style writers stress that you keep the continuation bets and re-raises going even if you only just catch part of the flop.

The books simple and coherent layout makes it a must-have item for any poker player, whether they be experienced or not. The book simply has a page or two for each poker tip, from 1-52. The book handles live and on-line playing, discussing odds, reads, betting patterns and anything else that is necessary for any poker player. A must have 'clear and concise book'.

This is a very good book for any beginner, it is very well laid out and if you stick to what you are being told you're onto a sure winner. I've gone through this book a number of times and it has done me well. I use it as a reference to see where I'm going wrong when I have a bit of a downturn. Great for newbies and the experienced player.

Leant to me by a friend who I play with regularly this book is a great book for targeting your weaker game play areas as it allows the novice, intermediate or advanced player to get the author's take on so many common situations, how to play them and fantastic examples of how the game can change throughout each tip almost prompting you to think more in depth about each hand that you play to maximise your position even if that means folding! A much friendlier poker book than some of the guides and thoroughly recommend to anyone with an interest in the game. You will certainly won't be the short stack after reading these tips!

I have been playing on-line for a while with mediocre success up & down and sometimes out. This book is a wealth of information, great observation tips, that you would never even consider whilst playing especially on-line are absolutely bang on the money. It has already improved my game immensely and I will continue to read it over and over again. Not an easy read in one sitting so read digest and read again. A good investment if you want to improve.

Got this as a present for a poker playing friend, but had a quick skim through it first (don't want him knowing anything I don't!) and thought it was a little more basic than I'd hoped. We've been playing for about four years and this book is more suited to the beginner/improver than the experienced player. For someone at that stage, it's clear, concise and very useful.

An amazing aid to those new to Poker. It's a bit like a dictionary in which you can just refer to it when needed, and for that reason I urge people to not buy it for Kindle, it just makes things a pain for this type of book.
