A century ago, this book and those like it were the only resources available to Westerners learning Go. Today, there are far better books on the market. Buy some of them.
In all fairness, I think some reviewers have judged this book too harshly. Taking into account the time the book was first published and the lack of go material available then, this book does an adequate job in what it sets out to do: inform Westerners about Go. It is a pity that it is written more like a college essay than a book, and never really expresses the passion that Go players feel for this game.
