I have played backgammon for a while now and I know this game is not just a race however did not realise how complex this can be and that there is a strategy behind it! Robertie presents 5 top-players games in which he explains almost each move. Very good book, I have learnt a lot and can see the progress in my play already. Worth reading at least once. If you want to improve your play that is a book for you.
I have got 2004 edition and surprisingly have not noticed any editorial errors - great job!
