This is the best poker book to come out in a long time, and I imagine it will remain the best poker book to come out for many years to come. (Bradley Chalupski PokerUpdate, July 2015)
As Scott Clements notes in his chapter, 'Regardless of your comfort zone or your results, if you refuse to push your boundaries, you will not progress and grow as a player.' By offering such a variety of quality instruction and insight, Excelling at No-Limit Hold'em gives readers several ways to do just that ― namely, to push their boundaries and think further about many different facets of hold'em as a means to improve their games. (Martin Harris PokerNews, June 2015)
When someone who is interested in studying poker more asks which poker book they should purchase, the answer is usually a mixture of Super System for the complete basics, and Harrington on Hold'em for further more up-to-date clarifications. However, it is my belief that Excelling at No-Limit Hold'em could become the new go-to book for those wishing to read up on tournament poker...Jonathan Little should be commended for bringing such a talented group of individuals together for what is an outstanding poker book.

My favorite chapter so far is the one by Alex Fitzgerald on hand ranges. It starts with one of the best explanations of the ICM model and why you should care about it in tournaments. Then Alex goes on to explain how to do the maths to determine if a particular bet is profitable given the situation and player range for the particular hand. I'll be reading this chapter several times / and follow the practice exercises he suggests with getting used to popular software packages like flopzilla. If you read only this chapter and applied its lessons you will become a better player guaranteed.
The chapter with Phil and Liv is interesting in that it shows how two different styles (old school feel / experience vs. new school math / range analysis) can both be successful.
The chapter by Evan Jarvis is a good summary of some of his lessons and ideas from his youtube videos and website. Nice concise chapter.
My least favorite chapter is the one by Chris Moneymaker. The chapter didn't seem to add anything new in terms of ideas or technique that any player with more than a year's experience at tournaments doesn't already know.
All in all a very good book with material that captures some of the latest poker experts ideas into one convenient place.
Jonathan Little's book accomplishes this eclectic approach, and, though very few reach the lofty heights of the true-professional, the contents of this book are a worth while study for those who earnestly desire to ascend to the loftier realms.
Many of the individual chapters alone are worth the price you pay for the entire book. I highly recommend that anyone looking to elevate their game reads and rereads the chapter by Alexander Fitzgerald. This is truly a Super System for today's poker player.
P.S. I also highly recommend Jonathan's other books as well, including all three volumes of Secrets of Professional Tournament Poker and Positive Poker, a book by Dr. Patricia Cardner in which Jonathan contributes.
