This system worked well back in the 1970s, and probably the 1980s and 1990s, but once Chris Moneymaker won the World Series of Poker and so many people flooded the poker market, it led to a great deal of passion for the game, and those who were most passionate educated themselves as much as possible -- including Super System.
This altered the game, and the aggressive style Doyle used to implement won't be as effective because there are now many counter-strategies. If you have watched Doyle play over the past decade, you can see that even he doesn't apply the Super System he created, simply because the game has changed.
All that said, it's a highly recommended read for any poker player because it will create a strong fundamental base of knowledge. The first section about Doyle and his road to poker can also be inspirational. Just be sure you're ready to fully commit to the game. Otherwise, it will be an expensive hobby.
I have to say, despite all the flash and flair exuded by today's hip players, if there was only one pro I could meet, it would definitely have to be Doyle Brunson. I admire his story and also treasure the advice he issues on tactics and strategy.
I'm sorry that Doyle had to change his style due to the publication of Super System, but I am very grateful that he wrote the book. Studying his suggestions have helped me become a more aggressive and stronger player. I was a rock for too long. I think that you'll continuously be saying to yourself as you peruse it, "Yes, yes, that'll work." It really will.
Overall, even if you're not interested in draw, stud, lowball, or high-low split, Doyle's autobiographical essay, and his general poker strategy are must reads. This volume retailed for 100 bucks twenty-six years ago, and, for less than 20 dollars a copy, it's a steal.
I have read several books on Hold 'em. This is one I would recommend.
I'ts like an encyclopedia of poker strategy. Enjoy!
