Observations on some of the people and the culture of poker. Also a little off topic ranting now and then.

Getting the Best of It is David's personal favorites among his work. It's a very basic book, covering some poker, some general gambling, some biographical stuff about David. It's his attempt to convey the idea of how to get an edge in a gamble. He does a pretty good job of it. A really good book selection for beginning gamblers.
I have a signed edition, it was a gift from David.
If you're relatively new to poker and don't have any background in mathematics then you might be better with a more basic book on simple probability applications to gambling like Sklansky's Getting the Best of It
