While many feel there is no definitive book on Omaha, this book may come close. Using the technique of presenting a hand and asking what you, the player, would do at various betting levels - this book is great for that reason alone. --Launchpoker.com
Finally a good how to textbook on pot-limit Omaha money play, and finally written by someone who is known for his loose starting hand requirements. It is a must-read for all PLO money players who are serious in trying to improve their game, and who want concrete advice from a somewhat loose, but also experienced and successful high-stakes player --Rolf "Ace" Slotboom
If you play or if you are interested in playing pot-limit Omaha there is no question that you want to get Reuben's Omaha book. It is interesting, contains solid advice and is reasonably priced. Recommended. --Tristan Steiger, Poker Soft

His aggressive post-flop strategy makes good sense, and I have deployed it with positive results in the little £0.15/£0.25 cash games I play (I'm afraid my bankroll isn't up to his levels yet!).
My only issue is with his pre-flop starting requirements. They seem extremely loose, and given that his audience will be inexperienced I believe he should be preaching a tighter game (which would work nicely with his aggressive post-flop moves). While I might not be qualified to tell the author what to do, I note that in one hand he says he called simply to avoid boredom! A bit of giveaway - he should get an iPod to amuse himself between hands like the rest of us rocks!

I also found that the games that these hands came from were much more aggressive than the low-limit games that you find online. I don't think that these strategies are completely appropriate for those games. But, if you are playing for thousands at the Grosvenor Victoria, this is your handbook.
Still, in the end, I would say that it improved my game. Plus, there is very little written on the subject of Pot-Limit Omaha, so you are going to end up reading all three of those books, anyway.
For the most part, I disagreed with his style of play. I thought he was overly aggressive. But you have to remember he has made a lot of money playing poker and I have only made a little.
