I was a lot less confused about the middle game after reading this book than before. I still wasn't very good at it, but at least I had a framework to think about my moves. I've found this a useful one to come back to, as well - each time I read it, I think I understand the middle game, then I play some more, slowly get more and more confused about the middle game, at which point I go back and read this book again, and learn something new that I didn't understand the last time.

This is possibly my favorite go book. It's responsible for almost everything I know about strategy. There's plenty in it I don't totally get yet, but it should be useful in some way even to a 15k player. I get something new out of it every time I read it.
