I've been studying hold'em for about eight months and have worked my way thru a half-dozen of the recommended books. What I particularly like about this book is that it doesn't waste your time with a lot of very basic stuff. The crux of the book is over 400 examples of situations (your UTG, came in with a raise with JhJc, re-raised by the button, four people saw a flop of As,Ts,9s) followed by the author's recommendation (e.g., raise,check,fold) and his thought processes to arrive at his decision. I've always found that regardless of the subject, after getting thru the basics the best way to learn is to understand the thought processes of a pro. I thought the organization and presentation of the material was well thought out.
