Top Customer Reviews

I found this an extremely good book for the begginer or player with just the basic knowledge of backgammon.
The book is well written with the basic rules for the game followed by explaining how to use tactical play to get an advantage in the game.
There are a number of exercises to work out really to prove that the chapter as been understood.
Well worth it's value.
Stan.

Paul Lamford's Starting Out in Backgammon will do more than just take you from a beginner to a moderate player: someone who can use all of the advice in this book over-the-board will be a well above average player. You probably need to know the basics of playing before reading, so not for the total beginner. An excellent book, IMO, well written, readable and with exercises to help you apply the principles discussed.
