165 Appendix

Preface to the Third Edition

This book is written for players who know the rules and the most elementary tactics and wish to reach expert strength. It assumes that the reader has read one of the Ishi Press beginner books such as Introduction to Go, The Magic of Go, or Go for Beginners.

The text of this edition has been completely rewritten, although the diagrams (and content) are nearly the same as those in the second edition. The only major change has been the up-dating of an old joseki by Rob van Zeijst, which appears in the appendix. In addition, the order of the chap­ters has been changed: what is now Chapter Five, Tesuji, was Chapter One in the previous two editions. In addition, a number of errors have been corrected.

In the first two editions, Japanese terms were used throughout the book. In this edition, I have eliminated almost all these terms, retaining only the most essential ones such as atari, sente, gote, etc. These terms are defined in the glossary at the beginning. I believe this change will make this book more accessible to all beginning players.

The three main areas of go are covered in this book: the opening, the middle game, and the endgame. The emphasis in the opening sections is on handicap go. Since beginners plays most of their games with handicaps, they will have ample opportunity to adopt the strategies described in this book It is hoped that these strategies will help them win most of their high-handicap games.
