  Book Reviews "[..] Because of his computer aversion Danny Kleinmans book lack the confirmations of a bearoff databaes or computer rollouts. [..]

Danny Kleinman's judgements are not state of the art and sometimes wrong. Nevertheless his way of explaining positions, checker plays and how to solve problems is unprecedented, outstanding, fresh and original. Most of the time his analyses are sharp and convincing and you can learn from his way of working out a problem.

In general, Danny Kleinman's errors are not serious, but most of them he wouldn't make, if a computer with bearoff and rollout program were available. [..]

All in all Danny Kleinman's new book should only be bought by readers who are prepared to not only read but also work out each problem." -- Backgammon Magazin I/96
