David Sklansky's "The Theory of Poker" helped my game a lot. The newer generation of players put it down as old fashioned, but a lot of good building blocks for someone with a few solid months online. Barry Greenstein's "Ace on the River" is not so much for strategy, but is an entertaining read on my favourite poker pro.

Online poker is in constant evolution.There is no book that can tell you what tio do in every different situactions, and because poker is in constant evolution we need to adapt. This adaptation is not making by reading the books but playing and trying to feel confortable at the level your playing.
Reading is good to start to play, after that you need to adapt and the books doesnt tell you how to do that!!!

I don't think reading poker books makes you playing better. Any information or tip you read in the book, you can find online (we are in the 21th century). And the most important think to play good poker is practice, this means you should play a lot and so you will be better. You always should look the statistics and then you can analize your game. This will help you. good luck

Books can help you get an idea of what other people think and how they react in some situations. You must evaluate your game and improve it time after time. Its kinda hard trying to adapt to someone elses style i believe. It might end up to a disaster
