Top 5 books for live 1/2 - 2/5 Players

I know this topic has been asked before but the last one I seen was a few years old and many books have came out since then,

CLP is great but sometimes I love reading books too. In today's live 1/2 and 2/5 games what do you feel are the top books for newish players?

In no special order I like:

The Course - Ed Miller
Playing the Player - Ed Miller
How To Read Hands at NL Hold'em - Ed MIller
Poker Workbook For Math Geeks - Doug Hull
Poker Plays You Can Use - Doug Hull

Jon Little just released a new book this month on beating live 1/2 and 2/5 games but I have yet to get my copy.

    Never read it but I know its an older book. With the game having evolved so much in the last few years is it really still relevant?

    I think so, yes. Sklansky tends to write in more general terms, and shows people how to think and what to think about.
