Request for Suggestions

Flash: I don't have hard data to back it up, but I've come to the conclusion that I'm a losing player at NL cash games. Including the micro-limits, which a semi-skilled chimpanzee should be able to beat. It's sad.

I have about $50 in bookstore gift cards at the moment, and I'm considering using some or all of it to purchase a book.

Obviously there are now a ton of titles out there and I haven't really done any research to this point. It's easier to ask you, the bloggerati:

What book on NL cash would you suggest for someone who's not a complete noob but who needs to tear down his game and rebuild from scratch?

Thanks in advance.

Edit: I'm primarily interested in the electronic version, as my live game features (and probably always will) more tells than a roomful of tattlin' five year olds.

If you really are playing micro NL, make sure you're not paying the steep rake. It turns many "above water" players into losers.

For the players I have coached beyond beginner status, I always recommend Matt Matros' book "Making of a poker player". I know a few others like Ed Miller's SSHE.

Bottom line, the games are tougher online these days. I won't go near a table unless it has a low hand winning some chips.

i think if you haven't already read theory of poker, do that first. i haven't read yet, but several people have recommended nl holdem theory and practice by sklansky.
