  Book Reviews "I think this is Bill Robertie´s best. I found no mistakes in a package of 501 problems on 386 pages. The explanations are short and clear. All in all an excellent book and the buy is a must not only but also because of the low price! -- Harald Johanni at www.backgammonmagazin.de

"I have been reading 501 for the last month or so, and think it excellent. Each area of the game is headed by a chapter which provides some general guidelines. In the chapter you will find a series of problems to solve, but the meat of the book is in the solutions where you not only find the reasons supporting the author's choice, but sometimes even advice for similar situations. [..]
I think the book is a colossal value for the money spent." – Albert Silver, rec.games.backgammon, November 2002
