  Book Reviews "I agree that the book is excellent, especially re. checker play. Robertie's Advanced Backgammon volumes are heavily loaded on cube play, and Modern Backgammon (except for the Grandell/Ballard annotation), is almost exclusively checker play oriented. So I think Robertie gave us a nice balance with these major efforts.
Because of its length, conceptual ambition, and its inclusion of a fine mix of analysis, problems, and a lengthy annotated match, Modern Backgammon is the best backgammon book to come out in a long time." -- Frank Mazza, rec.games.backgammon, Apr 2003

"This is the best book written on backgammon for the advanced player in quite a while." – Neil Kazaross, rec.games.backgammon, Apr 2003
