    This is not just an introduction to go, though the first half of the book explains the rules and takes the beginner from 9x9 games that introduce basic concepts a nice teaching method that is probably less overwhelming to new players than jumping right into strategy on a full sized board to 13x13 games, and finally to 19x19 games There are complete examples of each, and Shotwell covers a lot of basic and intermediate theory I did not find it enhanced my game much at my current level, but he This is not just an introduction to go, thoug...

    I first tried to learn Go 25 or so years ago, but I was unable to find opponents and the English literature on it was quite limited I even own two Go sets A few days ago I noticed a Kindle Fire app to play Go for 4 and decided to try it again If I can t find human opponents then I can practice against a computer something I just couldn t do in 1985 Bes...

    There were a few good points and weak points to this book.I enjoyed how the book was supposed to be used as a sort of reference to start your go journey, and to come back to after you ve grown a bit as a player This allowed the book to spend some time on teacher the reader how to play go, and then later on in the book discussadvanced topics of play.The last chapter was a very interesting section on the history of go through China, Japan, and Korea Personally history of go is something I There were a few good points and weak points to this book.I enjoyed how the book was supposed to be used as a sort of reference to start your go journey, and to come back to after you ve grown a bit as a player This allowed the book to spend some time on teacher the reader how to play go, and then later on in the book discussadvanced topics of play.The last chapter was a very interesting section on the history of go through China, Japan, and Korea Personally history of go is something I m as inte...

    4.5 Stars It s been awhile since I read this, so I can t give it a detailed review I learned a lot from this book The short history of the game was informative though I urge readers to look into a longer introduction into this fascinating game The book goes on to detail basic moves and work the reader up to a decent level of play Where you go from there is up to you, but this is a great little text for either a single person wanting to learn or a group learning together If you ve ...

    Well written and probably about as engaging as a game about a board game is going to be The book tries really hard to sell Go as being some kind of physical manifestation of Taoist philosophy but falls pretty far short Good introduction but perhaps I m too practica...

    It s my first Go book, and I m a total newb, so it may not be saying much, but this has done wonders for my game I ve found the commented 9x9 games particularly eye opening, and made the most progress to date by applying the same analysis to my own games I can t compare it to other Go books, but i...

    My first Go book, so I don t have much to compare it to It was easy to follow, and I learnedthan just basics By the time I finished reading the book, I had played enough games to know what was going oneven though 99% of the time I was doing the wrong thing I still have a lot to learn.
