  Rezensionen "Its a typical basic beginner's book from the early 70's. Rules, objectives, opening moves, return openers, basic middle game; end game strategies, bearoffs, elementary cube theory, lots of probability tables, pip count methods, a 'revolutionary gammon count', learning quizzes, a sample annotated game, and some psychology of the game. The board notation is annoying eg W3 and B4 etc.
If you've read anything by Magriel, Robertie, Cooke, Woolsey, Kleinman etc, you won't learn anything new, period.
If your interested in stories from the 70's hey day, its very disappointing in comparison to the Playboy book.
Is it worth owning? Probably only if your a collector and you can find a first edition hardback copy. Its got a nice picture on the front and it won't fall apart as soon as you open it :-)." – Mark Driver, rec.games.backgammon, May 2001
