    1. Opening, for me, is the most difficult part Different from chess players who start from having everything on board, Go players start from having nothing Though intuition may play quite a big role in this stage of the game, there are certain principles fuseki that can guide our rational thinking and that what Otake Hideo offered in his book Very useful.

    2. A must read for the beginner Go player Otake Hideo presents twenty strategic principles to guide the player through the opening phase of the game Outstanding instruction is provided with both the correct line of play, and examples of the incorrect line of play, so that the student can fully understand the material presented and the concepts behind it Normally when I am done reading a book, I quickly move onto the next as I usually have a stack of books that I want to read , but in this case, I w [...]

    6. For those of you interested in improving your game of Go, this is an excellent book that explains with clear detail and good diagrams, different principles and theories of opening moves This book doesn t go into Joseki s or Fuseki s or fighting, it only covers the first twenty moves of a game and explains why these are the most crucial moves that lead to the middle game A must have for any Go player interested in improving their game.

    7. Terrific guide to the opening moves of go Covers a number of important principles, with enlightening examples Each idea discussed gets only 5 to 10 pages of coverage, so the real role of this book is not as a reference, but as an introduction to concepts that the reader needs to explore in their own games That said, Otake s coverage is lucid and accessible.

    8. A truly beautiful book for the game of Go Easy to read, elegant and applicable to a broad range of players, this book is my top suggestion for go books beyond an introduction to the game Opening concepts are laid out in broad, easy to remember principles It is also pleasurable to read.

    9. Clear, sober, to the point Divided in a set of principles that you will remember when you play even if you only remember them after playing the wrong move.
