    Default SHould I cash out most of my bankroll to buy "Let there be Range!" on Amazon.com?

    I'm not quite sure if it's priced to the point that I'd run into the "Law of diminishing returns" but after 2 1/2 years of grinding all but non-stop at the tables I got enough money in my poker bankroll to purchase "Let there be Range!" and still have some bankroll left over, granted I'd have to go back down to the micros, 25nl tops.

    What is your guys opinion on this matter? Do you think it's worth getting for about 2/3 of my whole bankroll? I figure if it's a poker book priced at about $1,600 on Amazon how can I possibly go wrong? The authors are profoundly better poker players than I am and this would be the kind of reading material for people playing 2000nl or higher.

    I wouldn't. It is bad BR management. Additionally, there's nothing "secret" in the book that you can't learn by experience and study. Your training costs should never be that large a portion of your bankroll.

    DO NOT BUY THE BOOK!!!!!! No book is worth that much. Also, there is a law of diminishing returns.

    For every hour you spend reading the book, you can spend playing poker and the lessons learned from playing poker will stay firmer in your mind. Reading the book will make you forget a lot of things or mis-remember them when it comes to bat.
