This is such a comprehensive book! I was surprised at how thorough the information was and how the content being covered progressed so seamlessly from the fundamentals of poker 101 onto intermediate and more advanced play.
That being said, it's not "too advanced" that the concepts become dry and academic and it's not too advanced that it no longer applies to the stakes this book focuses on (Low Stakes).
This book is like a survivors guide to Low Stakes poker and a conquerors guide in one! If you're starting from the bottom and are looking to move up through the stakes, or if you are an intermediate player looking for a great refresher or to reinforce and add to the knowledge you already have... then I recommend you read this book. I can't wait to read more content from Mike Turner! Finally, an author breaking down content that applies to the rest of us!

Mike has done an excellent job in his 2-part Poker series "Crushing Low Stakes Poker". I enjoyed listening to the audiobooks and was able to learn some new strategies and insights. The two books really complement one another and share the same ideas. Volume 1 is a general strategy book, whereas Volume 2 focuses on heads-up play.
I'd say the books are perfect for beginners as they assume little prior knowledge. I have a close friend whose experience with poker was limited to the occasional home game and one of the reasons I'd recommend Mike's books is because I was astounded how they helped him develop a strong game. Don't get me wrong, you won't become a professional poker player and able to quit your job after 3 weeks just by listening to these books. You have to practice practice practice, it takes serious determination. If there was no effort needed we would all be making thousands of dollars playing poker. If you are determined to put in the work, then these guides will take you to your goals.
Intermediate and Advanced players: if you have some hours to spare I can recommend listening to this series as well. Just put it on when you're in your car to work and there will probably be some gems in there that you can use to improve your game.
The style of narration is pleasant, the book is read, but conversational enough to keep you sharp.
