I absolutely cannot rave enough about this book. Harrington takes your hand and walks you step by step through the decision-making process in dozens of hands. Along the way, he scores the quality of your decisions. Although he remains conservative and likes to play a hand substantially according to its potential, he respects more aggressive plays. He discusses the merits and drawbacks to other types of plays throughout, and tells you what he would do and why. An awesome display of poker analysis.
Some books are so good that they define their field. Every book that comes after may agree, disagree, or clarify what a definitive book has to say on its subject, but there is one thing subsequent books can't do: they can't ignore it. If you're a serious tournament poker player, you can't ignore the Harrington series. This is THE classic text on Texas hold em poker tournament strategy, bar none.
Vol. 2 continues the greatness of Harrington's series by moving away from the formulaic, conservative approach taken in Vol. 1. This is understandable, since you have to learn to walk before you can run. And by the time you finish Harrington Vol. 2, you'll be ready for the speed trials! Words like "highly recommended" can be overused, so I'll just say you'd be crazy to gamble any serious amount of money without buying and completely absorbing all three of Harrington's books. You should also re-read them right before any major event to clarify your thinking. They're THAT good!
I'd also recommend The Poker Tournament Formula and Poker Tips that Pay: Expert Strategy Guide for Winning No Limit Texas Hold em for readers that are looking beyond the Harrington series, for additional hand-based poker strategies and techniques. Both books compliment Harrington's approach to the game quite well.
I loved how Harrington put in a ton of situational questions that allow you to test your ability to master the skills taught in this book. Take your time and try to get these questions right, it will pay off in the long run.
By the time I was halfway through reading this book, I noticed a huge difference in where I was placing in online and video game tournaments. I have ordered his second book, and am getting ready to read it now. A lot of the first book's sections tell you to read the second book, and I would recommend it for any experienced player.
If you are a newbie to the game, this book will put you in a fantastic position to have a heads up on your friends. If you are experienced, this book will give you way more information than you can ever use, but you can pick and choose what to apply in your game.
You absolutely will be a better player after reading this book!
