pokerchick1172 is an unknown quantity at this point
Default Best micro stakes book to start with?

Hi everyone. I just graduated from play money on Pokerstars to real money. I'm starting small at the $0.01/$0.02 & $0.02/$0.05 games and hope to graduate further soon.

Which book is best for micro stakes?

Small Stakes Hold'em - Winning Big with Expert Play

No Limit Hold'em - Beating the Micro Stakes

Winning Low Limit Holdem

I'd like a book that is good for the low limits and these three seem to fit the bill. Has anyone read any of them?

Small Stakes Hold'em - Winning Big with Expert Play is ok, but it is about fixed limit holdem.

Winning Low Limit Hold'Em is still just about all you need for micro-stakes limit games. I found it invaluable for two reasons.

First, Lee Jones explains the concept of discipline so very well - his focus isn't limited to what you should be playing and how, but also what you should not be playing and why. As just an example, his explanation of why raising with AJo UTG is almost always a losing strategy has probably save me, quite literally, tens of dollars, even playing at my lowly 0.25/0.50 stakes.

Secondly, he doesn't try and get fancy but he identifies the strong plays which work at the lowest levels of the game. And they do. Again, as an example, learning the correct use of the free card play has saved $$$ and that is as much about losing less in a hand you don't win as winning more in those you do.

Lee Jones focusses on how and why it's other players who will make the mistakes at this level - all you'll need is the discipline to allow them and to take their money when they do.
