Supersytem and Supersytem 2.

Andrew Brokos has some good ones on game theory and poker also.
The race is not always to the swift, nor the battle to the strong; but that is the way to bet.

There is one book that i recommend to anyone starting out playing poker. "The Theory of Poker" by David Sklansky,

At my age, a "Life In Prison" sentence is not much of a deterrent.

I wrote an article about what most books overlook: Getting over the fear of going into a casino poker room. It has zero strategy info but a lot of useful stuff for newbie players that are hesitant.

https://wizardofvegas.com/articles/introduction-to-poker-in-a-casino-poker-room/

As far as learning the game, here痴 an excerpt from my article.

There are poker leagues across the country. Do a Google search in your area.

Most play at a pub or restaurant, with no fees other than a request to patronize the venue.

Unlike a sports league, in poker leagues there is no requirement to play any specific day or number of times. They often have some method of tracking performance, with prizes including trips to Las Vegas or a local casino. While frequent participation makes it is easier to win the big prize that they offer, most leagues have methods where a player can win prizes even when playing infrequently.

Also, to keep it legal and non-gambling, in most cases there is no fee. The league makes money from the venue, the same way the venue would pay DJs and other entertainers. If it brings in business, the venue is happy, so be sure to patronize the venue while you play.

Unlike in a poker room, where it may be good advice to believe the exact opposite of what people tell you, the players in poker leagues tend to be friendly, open, and will offer honest answers to poker questions. After all, if they are kind and friendly, they know you may become a regular player. Many poker league players use it as a way to tune up their game in between their trips to the casino's poker room.

In most leagues, the players do the actual dealing, passing the deck every hand. In some leagues, there is a dedicated dealer at each table. This author has played in both types, but now has graduated to being a dealer in a league with dedicated dealers: World Free Poker, based in Northern New Jersey.

For the price of a burger and a beer, poker leagues are a great way to learn the game.
