I guess we could use a thread like this. So far I only have this, but with the help of you, we can make this forum better. So please input and I hope that in a week or 2 we have a proper faq, that we can make sticky.
The intention of this thread is to avoid useless threads with questions, that this community sees daily. Of course, we encourage everyone to post here, but to keep up with the quality, we should keep in mind that certain questions are just being asked way too often. Here is a list of what we believe are these questions.
"Secrets of Short Handed Pot Limit Omaha" by Rolf Slotboom
“The Pot-Limit Omaha Book: Transitioning from NLHE to PLO” by Slowhabit
“Pot-Limit Omaha Poker” by Jeff Hwang
[We need book reviews]
In PLO you will have much bigger up and downswings and therefore if you like to play PLO with proper bankroll management, you should have at least 50BI at the lower levels and 100BI and the higher levels. This is seriously recommended if you play or want to play PLO professionally.

Jeff Hwang Big Play Strategy.
Good book. As someone who played NLH for a long time, this book really opened my eyes on how to evaluate the big drawing hands correctly.
Obviously the name is The Big Play Strategy, so it does not focus on picking up small pots, but that's not the books goal.
I also found the book didn't apply to 6 max all that well, again it's focusing on the big play and not taking down small pots.
Once you acknowledge the book's shortcomings though, it is a very good book. It has a ton of hand examples, and has sections dedicated to LO8 and PLO8.
As I said, biggest strength is really helping you develop a strong understanding of big draws and hand structures.
