Publisher's Summary

Discover the fascinating Eastern game that’s lasted for millennia! 

What is Go?

Go is a deceptively simple two-player game, played on square boards of various sizes. According to legend, the Chinese Emperor Yau invented this game to teach his son concentration, balance, and discipline. Over time, this game spread to Japan - and across the globe. For over four millennia, war leaders and sages have consulted this game to learn strategy, wisdom, and mental mastery.

In How to Play Go, you’ll discover everything you need to know to play this ancient game. You’ll learn all the basics of capturing territory and pieces (including self-capture), handling dead stones, and mastering the endgame. This book explains the scoring system of Go - and how to grow from a beginner player to true mastery.

How to Play Go explains advanced Go concepts like the Ko Rule, Eyes, and Dead/Live Groups. You’ll discover Atari, Handicaps, Komi, Cutting, and much more!

It's more of an overview of the game

I know the book was only 47 minutes long, but I'm still relatively new to Go and I didn't really gain anything from this book. He just gives a basic overview and explains some basic shapes. The author does well in explaining his visuals through the audiobook, but I already knew what he was talking about when he mentioned some stuff. This may be good for an absolute beginner who just want to get his toes a little wet before jumping in.
