"In closing, I must admit that I just don't have enough time and space to say more good things about 'Backgammon Praxis'.
It is the best match analysis book I've ever seen. [..] The quality of play by the four world-class
players is quite good, and the games are very instructive. Much of the book may be over the heads
of beginners. However, it is a superb book for those intermediates looking to become strong advanced
players, and a great tool for experts looking to further improve. [..]
'Backgammon Praxis' receives a grade A from me!!" — Neil Kazaross, Flint Area BackgammonNews, May 2005
