    One thought on “In the Beginning”

    1. Is there a perfect go book? I haven't found one yet, but so far I learn a little bit from each one, and In the Beginning covers a lot of fundamentals relating to the beginning of the game: how to play in the corners, with follow-up moves (shimari and kakari), then some discussion of extending along the sides, into the center, invasions, and pincer attacks. Then, a list of nine concepts for improving your opening game:Make Your Stones Work TogetherEfficiencyPlay Away from StrengthThickness and Wa [...]

    2. I just finished reading it cover-to-cover, working most of the examples out on a board and playing games in between. I still failed most of the 10 problems at the end. I could read it again in a few weeks and get almost as much out of it the second time.Before this book, I would play on star points, then connect some of my groups or just start fighting because I had no idea what I was doing. After this book, I'm establishing bases, extending along the side, and playing for territory more success [...]

    3. I really enjoyed this book and I think it improved my game. I immediately wanted to re-read the book once I finished it!

    4. Exactly what I was hoping for: not a detailed analysis of joseki but a more general overview of basic principles of the opening. Recommended.

    5. A fairly good book for the beginning igo player. I picked it up from the local library in pure joy of actually seeing a go book on the shelf, and I must note that I'm about 5kyu in level. Thus this book is not for me to begin with (though I still think I can give something of an adequate review of it). I think Ishigure starts off well and explains things that a lot of beginners need to know, but I think that he doesn't continue as long as he should. Many of the complaints I got from beginners I [...]

    6. Between this and "Opening Theory Made Easy", the beginner/intermediate student of Go would have a solid foundation as to the moves and thought process of the opening of a game of Go. Covering all of the vital opening points, such as 3-3, 3-4, 4-4 etc. in detail, as to the ideas behind them, the book then goes on to extensions, pincers, shimari, kakari, etc. There is a section of 10 test positions that the student can choose the move they would make and then turn to see how they would score with [...]

    7. While I feel that "Opening Theory Made Easy" is a better book than this one, I still read "In the Beginning" twice. There is a lot of fundamental information to be gained from it. It's well written, with clear examples.It ends with a series of 10 problems which are graded on a sliding scale. You can get partial credit for playing 2nd- or 3rd- best moves, which are all explained.

    8. An excellent book to follow introductory books by Shotwell, Cho Chikun and Kaoru Iwamoto.I finished a second reading a few months ago and am now near the end of a 3rd. Each time a grasp a bit more and look forward to a 'full' understanding in a few years and 3-4 more readings.

    9. Great book for those who've mastered the basic rules and concepts of go/baduk/weiqi. Once you've read this, you'll feel a lot less confused about where to place your next stone on that giant empty board; it offers basic principles and has lots of illuminating examples.

    10. This and Kageyama's Fundamentals were my first Go books. I read this as a 15-20k. Much of it was beyond my ability at the time, but I still got a lot out of it! I've revisited it a few times, and will continue to. A wonderful book.

    11. Opening is an abstract concept that few amateurs really understand. This is certainly a good book on opening theory. I'd say it's well-written enough that advanced beginners (about 10k) can follow it. However, it's probably useful into the low dan levels.
