    Great fire wood ! The book is solid. there is thread on 2+2 where Masson Mallmuth is on defense mode saying that it's the same as Harrington's on cash games but Carroters book is much more solid.

    Does it add something new to knowledge database? For instance, if someone read Blackrain's book, Baluga's book and Janda waits in line along with Let there be range, is it worth purchasing at all? Thanks in advance.

    Carroters book and his DC videos are very good. Highly recommended.

    He would make a great instructor on this site.

    LTBR was a major book at the time, Baluga's book also, Blackrain got good books but are a lot lot simpler. Janda's book is a great course. I would say that Carroters book is a lot more solid than Blackrain's books but Rain's books give great basics for beginners. Carroters book go a lot deeper and offers new perspectives for players looking to go up a level from beginners/mid.

    It is designed for online but all the theory is applicable live/online since it's Core Poker Theory. He is working a lot with HUD's stats but it gives you the framework to apply it live.

    Also the structure of the book build on each chapter so it's like learning a recipe, you can't skip any steps and you got to do it in order so for that the book is very well made.

    I would recommend the book for any serious players that want to upgrade is game from the basics to advanced stuff that will greatly improved his game and his understanding of the game.

    The book is LEGIT. I would highly reccomend it. You can sign up for amazon kindle unlimited (i think thats what its called) and you can read it there. I think its 10 dollars a month but have a free trial for a month.

    @Adam Wheeler, @Blake Van Ness thanks for advice. Ive been following a dozen of online players blogs and most of them mentioned the book. I should give it a shot. I dont know why the book is available for kindle prime, usually books available fir that is priced around $10, but the book is about $50. Must be bargain.

    @Christian Soto I am seriously considering doing a VLog where I'm all suit up with a glass of scotch and I am starting a fire with some of my old poker books.
