I'm running out of good things to say about David Sklansky (and his right hand man Mason Malmuth). These guys are almost without peer as gambling (especially poker) theorists. Not surprisngly, Holdem for Advanced Players is one of the definitive books on Holdem.

Part One is basically a crash course in how to play in relatively tough (by low limit standards) games. It's more than just a guide to starting hands (although that's probably worth the price of admissions by itself).

Part Two introduces a lot of important concepts like semi-bluffing and also covers some common situations (like how to play the river when it's heads-up).
