I just finished my second, and probably not last, read through of volume two of Janice Kim’s ‘Learn to play Go’ series. It is, for a neophyte Go player, an excellent read. Her first book had to spend a lot of time on the mechanics of the game, but here she’s talking tactics, mostly.
Perhaps you’re a better student than me, but after a single read-through I knew I hadn’t absorbed it all. And even after a second, I think there are points I’ve missed. I’ll revisit the book again later.
Her first volume is a great start to learning the game, but if you know basically how to play, Volume II is the place to begin learning how to play well.
