    Likely the only book on improving at Go which can also be enjoyably read by someone who doesn t care about the game This is far from just a collection of diagrams and technical explanations Using his Japan of the 1970s for analogies, Kageyama shows you the importance of fundamentals in all areas of the game He admonished you for being such a scrub and tries his best to open your amateurish mind to the beauty of professional class moves It s an often very funny book that deserves its fame in Likely the only book on improving at Go which can also be enjoyably read by someone who doe...

    Many of the finer points of this book went over my head I can t quite see when a two space extension and a three space extension are totally different moves But Kageyama puts it best when he says Experts can finesse their way out, bunglers can bungle their way out, but everybody should break through white s enclosure somehow This book covers the fundamental concepts that will help you think about Go, even if details and specific applications still elude you, and it does an excellent job Wh Many of the finer points of this book went over my head I can t quite see when a two space extension and a three space extension are totally different moves But Kageyama puts it best when he says Experts can finesse their way out, bunglers can bungle their way out, but everybody...

    Kageyama was a crusty old man, but with a dry as toast sense of humor He s just about everything you expect and want from a Go teacher he rambles about baseball, squeezes in references to long dead samurai, and playfully badgers his pupils for being dumb enough to make bad moves.This is the perfect must read book on Go, except for one thing it sure ain t for beginners Kageyama himself explains his mildly wonky definition of who is a beginner He assumes you re already familiar with joseki, Kageyama was a crusty old man, but with a dry as toast sense of humor He s just about everything you expect and want from a Go teacher he rambles about baseball, squeezes in references to long dead samurai, and playfully badgers his pupils for being dumb enough to make bad moves.This is the perfect must read book on Go, except for one thing it sure ain t for beginners Kageyama himself explains his mildly wonky definition of who is a beginner He assumes you re already familiar with joseki, tesuji, sente, gote, and about a dozen other Japanese terms an absolute beginner would not recognize from konnichiwa What this book is for are people who have already put in their hundred s of games of go, and have now hit a wall and need a hand getting the...

    Fantastic Written in a very personal style that is easy to identify with rather that scholarly or formal It even had me laughing out loud a couple of times.It takes the view that fundamentals are worth going over again and again, sort of like spring training in baseball No matter how long a player has been a pro, they always start with fundamentals All other skills proceed from them.I know that I will be reading this book again and again for my own spring training any time of t...

    Regardless of what the title might suggest, this is not a beginner s flavored book If you still get vertigo at the sight of an empty 19x19 board, then you re better off with hell, I don t know This is the first book about Go I ve read, so I cannot suggest anything other than playing 100 games, or something, and pick this one up when you re above 15kyu, or something Kageyama is not teaching the fundamentals of Go, but rather the value and importance of such fundamentals He s preaching at al Regardless of what the title might suggest, this is not a beginner s flavored book If you still get vertigo at the sight of an empty 19x19 board, then you re b...
