Forgive me if this has been covered elsewhere.

I recently got a hold of a copy of Applications of No Limit Hold Em by Matthew Janda from a friend and was, to say the least, shocked by how poorly written and edited it is in parts.

This is not an attack on Janda so much as a question for Mason and/or Two Plus Two publishing.

I bought my first 2+2 book over 20 years ago and have always loved the crisp, clean style of the prose and always considered the imprimatur of those cards on the spine as a guarantee the book would be solid.

This Janda book, while technically rich and full of lots of good info, has an alarming amount of poorly written, sometimes even nonsensical sentences and grammatical errors.

So, again, forgive me if this has been discussed...but who okay'd this? Is there a revised version coming out any time? Or is the market for poker books these days such that nobody is really bothering?

The main reason I'm asking is because I would kill for a book this advanced/technical on modern GTO concepts to be written as well and as cleanly as I've always expected 2+2 books to be. If you all do decide to revise and publish a new edition, I'll personally buy 10 copies just to give away to friends.

The book has been available for 11 years and we have sold a lot of copies (27,000). You're the first person to make this type of complaint. Can you be specific?
