I bought this back when it was first released as an ebook, so I can only speak to the content in the book. The information isn't anything new or groundbreaking, and if you are subscribing to any of the video training sites then most of this information should be familiar to you. What the book does well is driving those points home with a ton of well thought out examples.

The bulk of the book is part 2 (beating 200NL) and it does a very good job of breaking down the basic skills you need to beat aggressive 6 max games (stealing, value betting, isolating, 3/4/5 betting, ranging, etc.). I personally found the chapters on value betting and handling opposing aggression to be the most useful chapters in the book. The third part of the book (7 easy steps...) is mostly fluff, but its not very long so its not too bad. Part 4 (beyond 200NL) is good as well, particularly the sections on overbetting and underbetting the flop. Overall I would say I was pleased with the purchase, and I would definitely recommend it to others.

Well written (as are all Ed Miller tomes), clear and concise. You wont' get all the info on your 1st or even 5th read, but you will become a much more proficient no-limit poker player if you learn this material.
Written for online 6-Max games, but just as easily adapted to live full-ring games. Mainly you are taught how to be aggressive to keep up with current no-limit trends.
One of the top 5 poker books I have ever read (own 60+).

This book really gets you thinking about the fact that you must either have the best hand at showdown or be ready to be aggressive and steal pots. We all know that aggressive play works, but this book hammers the point home. The book focuses on online 6-max play, but the concepts apply to live full ring no-limit hold 'em games.
A great read!

Buy for online only. Not as useful for live table games. Also it really covers 6 MAX tables so if you are looking for full ring games this book isnt for you.

I highlighted so many parts of this book I think I maxed out the settings on my Kindle. VERY good material. Only drawback would be if you could not convert most of the 6 handed online advice to your particular game. If you can do that and read between the lines, the value of this book may be immeasurable in terms of MORE profit in the future. Buy it.

I have a bunch of poker books, and many are not well written or accessible in terms of easy understanding for the amateur player. This one is well written and completely comprehensible. Much better than most others I have. Definitely would recommend this.

The book is very well written and is a great way to learn some advanced concepts on NL holdem. Especially the concept of stack to pot ratio is presented in a very extensive but easily understandable manner. Overall, a great read for anybody serious about improving their NL skills.

I am still an intermediate player at best. I started with Harrington's books and I found them immensely useful, but the same information can be found in many other places. This book held my attention from the beginning to the end. The authors made their points clearly and concisely - over and over they made complex topics easy to understand. Each topic built on the previous topics. I would suggest you spread out your reading and mix it with o lot of playing to help cement your understanding along the way, but you will still gain a lot if you read it cover to cover. This book is definitely on my retread list.
