  Rezensionen "Now here's a hilarious book. I'd love to know where the author earned his 'World Champion' title as advertised on the cover. The book is the only one I've seen, though, that offers advice in positions that we often regard as completely beyond help. For instance, in the bear-off with two checkers on one's own ace-point and an opponent on roll with a checker on the ace- and three- points, Ball encourages us: 'X does not sit idly by and accept as fact that he will lose. X knows that 2-1's do appear and that he knows how to help make a 2-1 appear more often than probability. X visualizes a 2-1 on his mental screen and concentrates while O is rolling the dice ...' (p.186)" – Albert Steg
