"Invaluable as a guide for beginners and as a review for seasoned players." —The Oriental Econoist

A bit difficult to understand the game. Think the order of the chapters should be rearranged making the moves of the different pieces the top priority. I found the rules of the game so complicated that I gave up reading the book about two thirds of the way through. But I will return to it in the future.

Would give it 5 stars for a beginners book as it gives all the basic moves. But I was looking for something more advanced and found some of the suggested moves do not live up to todays standard as the best possible move. This was a 2nd printing and still had a few typos.

I did not like this book. I got it for my kindle. It told me almost nothing that I already found online and it didn't tell me any of the rules strait out like it should have. Save you money and just google Shogi.

A little too short and misses some information on the game but it's awesome for starters, to learn a new game, and it's easy to understand
