Product Description

Go experts regularly recommend the study of life and death problems in order to foster true strength at the game. There are a number of reasons for this. Training in reading is a primary reason. Another is the value of learning to recognize vital points. How to study shapes in go is still one more lesson to be learned. All of these things are important. But there is also an artistic element of life and death problems that is to be appreciated. This book examines life and death problems from a variety of perspectives, including the artistic element. Among the 150 life and death problems contained in this book, every theme of the subject is depicted. First, Maeda Nobuaki, the ''God of Life and Death Problems'' is featured, with 60 life and death problems presented. In addition, there is a retrospective examination of his career and one of his teaching essays. Next, Mimura Tomoyasu explains how to solve life and death problems in a down-to-earth manner. Fifteen masterpieces of life and death from the hand of the inimitable Fujisawa Shuko offer the reader a true test of strength, and there are six of the late Hashimoto Utaro's compositions; he is renowned as the master of life and death. Then there are ten problems which professional players themselves have selected as the best of all time. Tei Meiko takes the stage with 30 real game life and death problems, and Otake Hideo presents his own evaluations of unique shapes. Finally, Shirae Haruhiko challenges the reader to decide if a given position needs to have a move added.
