Has anyone seen this book with a price tag of $1500 lol, i was reading the views and ppls were saying its the best so i put let there be range pdf into google and found the whole book.

Are these pdfs the actual book or just random crap? I also found profesional no limit holdem book is sposed to be that good that it will baffle beginners somthing that ticks all the boxes for me, i just want to ump in the deep end and soak up all the info.

Has anyone read the professional no limit book is it anygood?

wow, and I was appalled to see somebody trying to sell a book for $50!

$1500 ... is the book made of gold or something?

It's actually on discount, only $1,397.99.
But yes it is hilarious that someone would pay that much, especially when the second result in google is a pdf copy of that book.
Also I love the fact that the book has a blue label on the down-left of the cover, which says ''NONTRANSFERABLE''.

It's definitely NOT a book for a beginner, especially someone that is not good with math.

JWK24 what do you recommend then? Like i said i i dont want to be reading something really basic i just want something that will baffle me at 1st but il get my head around it, the trouble with some of this stuff is its to basic to me now its like when i watch some of the training vids now im not learning anything.

As for my maths is pretty decent for off the top of your head calculations if i knew what type of calculation at the table off the top of my head i need to do, i could learn them fairly quickly but anything that involves doing some calculations where i need a pen that just look horrible to look at im not interested in because how can that even help you at the table. Plus i wouldn't be able to do them anyway.

Anyway i just found another book thats got a 10/10 rating called the poker blue print what would you guys say is better the blueprint or the professional no limit holdem book, il probably get both eventually but where should i start.

I read the poker blue print is for beginners i know im a beginner but i dont want some standard stuff ive all ready been over i want something thats gonna make me think about it.

High end books go way beyond the things you need to be thinking about at microstakes. I've not read 'Let There Be Range' or Bill Chen's 'Mathematics of Poker' (which is said to be full of complex equations), but the higher you go, the more you have to think about "correct bluffing frequencies" from a game theory point of view. Up to 50NL, you should be more concerned with value-betting correctly.
If you've not read it already, Pawel Nazarewicz's "Building a Bankroll" is a great guide for beating 2NL to 50NL, and it's also reasonably priced. If it's good enough for me, and it's good enough for GarethC23 (who is mentioned in the acknowledgements), then it should be good for you too.

For mid level... I'd recommend the Winning Poker Tournaments One Hand At A Time series (vol 1-3).

Il have a look at this build a bankroll book, i just saw the contents of it that forrest posted looks exactly like what i was looking for. By the title i expected it wouldnt have half of the stuff i just looked at.

Il have a look at those books as well jkw24, probably not for a while though because i want to get better at cash before i learn tourneys, though i still want to play those 6max games. The trouble is i think theres a lot to learn to beat mtts.
