It seems like a good book but the digital version is so bad that it is almost useless. Graphs are all cut off. Could not get my A game to A++ game

I enjoyed the book. It was written with enthusiasm and obvious experience. As a new player to Backgammon (I love the game) it introduced some valuable new concepts: strategy and odds. I found some explanations of play lacking. In particluar I remember a double having only 3 plays of the 4 explained. Overall a good book for beginners, I am sure it will improve my play.

I returned this book because a lot of diagrams were cut off in the Kindle version.
