Default Poker Book Recommendations

I'm headed to the beach next week and I would like to grab a poker book for reading. I'm thinking about buying into the WSOP Main Event this year so something on tournament strategy would be good.

I really enjoyed Every Hand Revealed by Gus Hansen so I might re-read that one too.

Please post to this thread every time you read a poker book that you like (or one that you don't like for that matter).

TIA!

Yes! Back in business!

Yeah that Gus Hansen is a great book because he starts out so bad and then runs so good. I think it can put you in the right frame of mind before a big tourney.

There is also "Winning Poker Tournaments One Hand at a Time" by Rizen, Pearljammer, and Apestyles. There are three volumes of that.

Thanks for the recommendation! I just order the three volumes. Can't wait to read them.

Not sure what a "beach" is called on the gulf. "Shore"?

Wow, people call it "LA" without a trace of irony?

Amazingly enough, I've been to Gulf Shores, Alabama. For five days.
