Right, but with the cash game book on the left, there's also a book about beating low limit cash games. I just wonder how the content of the 2 books differs. Have you read the 2 books you posted there and did you find them useful?

I flipped through the low limit one, but IBRMO it is aimed more at complete noobs. LNLCG is still not terribly complicated but has a few more high level concepts.

The one on the left seems to be a first of a series.

Poker Wisdom of a Champion (formerly titled: According to Doyle)
By Doyle Brunson.

It's a non-fiction short story book that could be finished in a few hours. The anecdotes convey principles around gamboling in an entertaining and humorous way.
