This is the first volume in a four-volume series published in China
between 1990 and 1996. The series is designed for mid-level
players, but there is material in all four volumes that will challenge
amateur dan level players.
These books are useful both as lesson
-books and as references. the authors are some of the strongest players
in the world. They are recognized as having special strength in the areas
about which they have written.
The present volume is a handy reference to joseki. It is far more comprehensive
than elementary works such as 38 Basic Joseki, but much more accessible
than any of the multi-volume dictionaries. For each variation, the author
provides sage advice on when to choose to play that line based on the whole-board
situation. Potential ladders, ko fights,
and seki are all explained in detail so the reader can appreciate under
what conditions a particular joseki can or cannot be played.
