  Rezensionen "Universally acknowledged as a classic and yet still underrated, Robertie's work organizes and explicates more high-level backgammon concepts than have ever appeared together, before or since. Even now, nearly a decade into the computer era, no other book is like it. In particular, no one to this day has been remotely so ambitious in the analysis of cube actions. In an era when the prevailing wisdom was that hand rollouts of cube actions were useless because of the many thousands of trials one would need to produce a reliable result, Robertie took a different perspective: he happily rolled out interresting positions in 108 game sets, fully understanding that many of his conclusions would be inaccurate, and fully expecting to become a much stronger player for the experience." – Jeremy Bagai, in Classic Backgammon Revisited, March 2001

Robertie's two books are most useful. Lots, lots of (very) interesting positions and also very good for improving your cube-handling I think. There's also good discussions on specific issues and reference positions, etc.
Just as Magriel's book is dated in some ways, Robertie's book is too. You might want to have JF rollouts for the book to see which advices are probably or perhaps not okay; these are available on the net (although a bit hard to find). It doesn't really decrease the value of the book though, just don't take all advice as gospel." – Robert Jan Veldhuizen, rec.games.backgammon, August 2000
