A few problems in "Graded Go Problems for Beginners" were much harder than the others and needed further explanation. But all told, this was many times more helpful than the hours I spent on goproblems.com. There is a method to this book and an order to the problems that helped me understand thi ...more

A good collection of 250 VERY beginner problems in Go. It starts by explaining the rules and gives the most basic of basic situations, but it eventually gets to more complicated problems.

What I find so great about this book is that it not only gives the correct answer, but it also shows a wrong answer for every problem, and EXPLAINS WHY IT'S WRONG. I find this to be very helpful. Sometimes with other lists of problems, I'll think the wrong move is correct and won't be able to see why. Having an ...more

After someone learns the rules of the game and some of the general principles, an important component in those first go games is the ability to read sequences correctly. An effective way to develop this skill, besides playing, is by solving problems.

This book has 239 problems for beginners. Some of them are really easy, such as spotting the move that puts the opponent stones in atari, but others will challenge the beginner player and provide a decent mental workout. Co ...more

Other books in the series nicely ramp up the difficulty in problems and are highly recommended. In fact, you'll probably want very soon ...more

Which is ok. This is a fine book of basic problems for beginners.

It could be even better with some introductory theoretical commentary for each of the subject areas. Yes, I know that there are plenty of intro books that provide that but, for a beginner, providing some additional context for the problems would be very helpful.

I don't know if I'll ever play much go, but I am looking forward to working through the next puzzles in the series.
