Learn How to Crush Low Stakes Games
Most poker books are written by professional poker players who play at the highest stakes. Whereas you can learn a lot from studying them, they won't always be as useful to you when you're mainly playing at the low stakes. Playing low stakes games against beginning and recreational players requires a whole different strategy and approach than playing high stakes games against the best of the best. The Crushing Low Stakes Poker series is focused specifically on low stakes play and teaches you the proper strategy to crush low stakes games.
Volume two of the series deals with heads-up play and covers heads-up fundamentals, theory, and strategy. We will take a close look at important topics such as hand reading, manipulating ranges, and post-flop play on different board textures. We will also cover common playing tendencies of low stakes opponents and how to take advantage of them. Becoming familiar with your opponents' weaknesses and learning how to develop effective counterstrategies will give you the edge you need in low stakes games.
Improve Your Tournament Results
Heads-up skills are essential to achieve good tournament results. There is a significant pay jump in tournaments from second to first prize so mastering heads-up play will make a big difference to your win rate.
This book explains heads-up strategy in a practical and easy to follow manner, providing you with the tools you need to master those tough one-on-one poker battles. So whether you play heads-up Sit 'n Gos or multiplayer SnGs/tournaments, Crushing Low Stakes Poker, Volume 2 will be of value to you.

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.
