Good Poker AUDIO Books

Elements of Poker by Tommy Angelo was very enjoyable. As with all good books, they can be "read" more than once. He narrates it himself.

Raising all-in against calling stations on draws?

For future reference for people, I am now reading a book called Easy Game by Andrew Seidman, and it is an excellent book with about 3-4 page long chapters. Perfect for those little reading sessions.
