Celebrity Poker Showdown co-host and world-class poker player Phil Gordon shows you how to look and play like a pro in this insider's guide to the poker world.

Like a secret society, poker has its own language and custom--its own governing logic and rules of etiquette that the uninitiated may find intimidating. It's a game of skill, and playing well depends on more than just a good hand or the ability to hide emotion. The first step toward developing a style of play worthy of the greats is learning to think like a poker player. In a game where there are no absolutes, mastering the basics is only the beginning--being able to pull off the strategy and theatrics is the difference between legendary wins and epic failure.

Pretty solid poker book, especially as an introductory piece. I've been going back and borrowing it more than once since it has some key principles worth reviewing like pot odds and starting hand rankings.
