"Turner does a great job of explaining different strategies and approaches in a thorough, understandable way. He takes you through, step by step, without adding much fluff or unnecessary tangents. [...] I found it incredibly informative, well written and easy to follow. I plan to make use of everything it has taught me. Many other poker books focus on how to win a high stakes tournament, however this book is perfect for the occasional, recreational poker player who wants to crush it every time."

Volume 2 is a nice half step on the way to higher stakes. It concentrates on heads-up poker, which can mean either heads-up matches, or the final elimination in a tournament (given typical prize distributions, winning the final heads-up portion can be almost as important and getting to the final two). It builds on the skills from volume 1, but now you likely are playing with a somewhat better players, and certainly one who is paying more attention to you. We're still talking low stakes, and if you've followed the author's advice, you're not at a table with the best low stakes player in the world, but you still have to add more detection and deception to your game.
Like the first volume, this book is clear and authoritative. It's short and easy to understand, even for a beginner, although I recommend reading volume 1 first and playing in some Sit 'n Gos until you're a consistent winner, even if your intention is to become a heads up specialist.
Also like volume 1, volume 2 doesn't just tell you how to beat low stakes games, it teaches you why things work. This is extra work you don't need if you're never venturing out of low stakes. Moreover the reason people lose at low stakes poker is not that no one ever told them how to play better, it's either that they don't want to play better, or are not capable of playing better. If either of those two things are your problem, this book will not help. It's not a rah-rah halftime speech to inspire you, it's basic poker knowledge. I recommend this book for people who want to become successful poker players. If you have the will, the author will show you the way.
In this book Turner discussed everything that you would need to know to walk away a winner in a low stakes sit 'n go head up plays. He teaches what heads up sit 'n gos are, why they are popular, the differences between them and other play types such as full ring, how they can be so profitable and how they are played (including the rules, key principles, how to know your hand strength, hand reading, ranges and how to manipulate them, post-flop play explanations including hand strength, board texture and the difference between static boards and volatile boards, etc.). There is also an immense amount of information about strategy including the different uses of both Game Theory Optimal (GTO) and Exploitive Play, and why one is better than the other and how to use both to your advantage. Also the technique of balancing (or giving the opponent as little information as possible about your play) and how you can use it with exploitive play to learn the common tendencies of opponents (such as passiveness, aggressiveness, transparency, etc.). To top off all the information that the author wrote about there are some GREAT appendices including a wonderful terms glossary, hand rankings information, push/fold charts and Sit and Go Endgame System (SAGE).
I would recommend this book to friends and I am willing to read the other ones as well. If you like playing Low Stakes Sit 'n Gos and tournaments then this is your guide book! I give it a rating of 5 stars because it was well edited and easy to understand.
If you are playing in online tournaments and are unfamiliar with the concepts this book teaches, you are leaving (or losing) money at the table.
