Some poker books are guaranteed to grab your attention. One such book is Eric Raskin’s The Moneymaker Effect. Right from when you start the first page, you won’t be able to tear yourself away from this excellent oral history of Chris Moneymaker’s legendary run to the 2003 WSOP Main Event winner’s circle. It’s a fantastic read that documents one of the most important moments in poker’s history in a way like no other.
If you’re looking to purchase a great poker book, there’s a series of three, by Jonathan Little, that we highly recommend. Having read through all three volumes of his series, called Secrets of Professional Tournament Poker, I think poker players, both casual and grinders, will find it educational and helpful for their bottom line. Read on for the specifics of why I feel that’s the case
Jared Tendler’s The Mental Game of Poker is a true 5-star classic! For years people have said that Brunson’s Super System or the Harrington on Hold’em series are must-reads for the poker playing set. This book shouldn’t just be added to that list, it should be at or near the top. Arguably, having an A+ mental poker game is more important than your poker game itself. Read our full review to see why this book is guaranteed to make you the best poker player you can possibly be.
