I can comment on your books.
Matthew Hilger -- Internet Texas Hold'em Daugherty and McEvoy -- No-limit Texas Hold'em
Those are pretty bad books, advice will often be incorrect especially from Mcevoy.
Caro -- The Body Language of Poker
This is a classic for poker tell. Mike Caro is a fascinating poker player and was one of the best 5 card draw poker player.
Harrington and Robertie -- currently six volumes, I believe. (I have the first 5.)
Those are one of the best books that have been written. The advice is solid and its pretty recent.
Sklansky books Sklansky on Poker Theory
This is considered by many a fantastic book. Still a good read, but I think its a little outdated and I think some people have the impression like Sklansky and Malmuth are like poker god but thats more a myth than reality and you have to be careful with everything that has been written by those 2 since most of the advices has been refuted or is outdated.
Lee Jones -- Winning Low Limit Hold'em
If you starting out in limit holdem, its good for beginner
Greenstein -- Ace on the River
This book has nice photos, interesting stories but no poker advice content.
Phil Gordon's Little Green Book
Funny to read, good story about hands and decent advices.
King Yao -- Weighing the Odds in Hold'em Poker
Bill Chen and Jerrod Ankerman -- The Mathematics of Poker
Those 2 books are heavy on the math side.
King yao book is about limit holdem. I think it overly complicated and it put to much emphasis on odds but the guy clearly know how to play poker.
Ive heard great critics about mathematics of poker but havent read it myself.
Matt Lessinger -- The Book of Bluffs
good book to bring to the WC. It written in a format you can read couple of pages at a time looking at different bluffs. The advice is to be taken not to seriously.
Super System vol. 1, 2
Its a great book if you want to learn many different form of poker, triple draw deuce to seven, razz etc
