This book is written for players who have acquired an understanding of the rules of go and some of its most elementary tactics and strategies by having read an introductory book and having played a few games. We have assumed that the reader understands the terms ‘sente’ and ‘gote’, that he knows what a ko is, is able to determine neutral points, and can count the score. Its aim is to give the novice an introduction to each phase of the game and to dispel a number of strategic and tactical misconceptions that often plague beginners and inhibit their progress. Beginners usually overemphasize defense, not realizing that the best way to defend is to attack. By attacking your opponent’s stones, you can often defend your weak positions in the process. Understanding this concept from the very beginning of one’s go career will clear the way for quick progress up through the kyu ranks. In this context, Chapters Two and Four are the most important and should be of value, especially to players who have been struggling for years to reach expert or dan level.
