Life, liberty, and the pursuit of territory through connection and influence - this is what go is all about. Though a fascinating game, go's potential complexity can be overwhelming at times.

"Proverbs" is a lucid and penetrating guide through the richness of this wonderful game. The proverbs themselves have been organized and expanded to emphasize the fundamentals of the game - fundamentals that even dan players are seen to flout!

This book collects and explains over a hundred fifty proverbs that have arisen over the centuries to help players remember various aspects of the game. For example, there are sayings pertaining to the life and death of groups and to a variety of fighting techniques. Some proverbs help remind players how to play certain josekis, and others provide advice about one's general approach to the game, philosophy, and fighting spirit.

"Proverbs" provides a wealth of basic Go knowledge in its eleven chapters: Basic Moves and Concepts; Good Shape and Bad; Playing Ko; The Opening; Joseki; Territorial Frameworks; Life and Death; Running, Connecting, and Capturing; Clever Moves, Forcing Moves, and Sacrifices; A Guide to Fighting; and a Potpourri of Proverbs. Hundreds of informative diagrams illustrate the concepts.

A study of this book will prove rewarding to all players. A beginner, confused by the many possible moves at every turn, will find what have become standard responses to common moves and much guidance in general situations. Stronger players will appreciate specific instruction in middle-game fighting and strategy.

Review(s)

The game of go has been popular in the orient for centuries and, over the years, a great many proverbs have arisen to help players remember various aspects of the game. For example, there are sayings pertaining to the life and death of groups and to a variety of fighting techniques. Some proverbs help remind players how to play certain josekis, and others provide advice about one's general approach to the game, philosophy, and fighting spirit.

A study of this book will prove rewarding to all players. A beginner, confused by the many possible moves at every turn, will find what have become standard responses to common moves and much guidance in general situations. Stronger players will appreciate specific instruction in middle-game fighting and strategy.

This book can be used to look up proverbs that one may have heard but perhaps not fully understood, to study systematically for a knowledge of fundamentals that is hard to locate in other go books, or just to dip into from time to time on a casual basis.

We hope you will enjoy this collection of traditional go wisdom and that you will send any comments or suggestions to Yutopian Enterprises.
