In your opinion, what are some of the must read poker books? I am refering not only to strategy books but also entertainment poker books as well. Also, let us know if you've read any books that you think are bad and not worth reading or wasting your money to buy.

Here are some pretty good books I've read recently in no particular order

I've always found Phil Gordon's advice to be pretty easy to follow -- I guess that's why he's on TV.
