    Advanced BJJ Techniques by Marcelo Garcia isn't out yet. I haven't purchased The Closed Guard by BJ Penn & I still haven't ordered Galvao's book yet.

    Imo, the best books to check out are:

    Mastering Jujitsu by Renzo Gracie and John Danaher
    Brazilian Jiujitsu strategies (pretty sure that's what it's called. It's not in front of me right now) by Jacare Cavalcanti
    Effortless Combat throws by Tim Cartmell

    I don't learn too many techniques from books and am always left wanting more when I see good text, explanations, philosophy in these books. I would much rather hear someones viewpoint on training, how to learn, explanation of body mechanics, etc....The things that make the moves work.

    Honestly there is so much good info on youtube now that I'm not even gonna bother buying supps anymore. Ofcourse buy JJU though, that's the bible of jiu jitsu and gives many insights beyond its techniques.
