    Drill to Win by Andre Galvao--but its release date keeps getting pushed back. I think a lot of people on here have pre-ordered this, including myself.

    I especially like Marcelo's book which combines gi and no-gi, and shows the parallels between them.

    Saulo. If you actually try and learn every technique in the book, you won't need another book for years, probably.

    The Essential Guard is not bad, though it would benefit from having default multiple angle photographs.
