About the Author

Cho Chikun was born in Seoul, Korea on June 20, 1956. He is considered one of the great prodigies in the history of go. At the age of six he came to Japan to become a disciple of Kitani Minoru 9-dan. In 1968 at the age of 11 he entered the professional ranks as a 1-dan, the youngest ever to achieve that rank, and it took him only another 12 years to attain the top rank of 9-dan. His first big tournament success came in 1975 when he won the 12th Professional Top Ten title. In 1980 he took the Meijin title and this was followed by a rapid succession of big-title victories: the Honinbo title in 1981, the Judan title in 1982 and the most prestigious title, Kisei, in 1983. When he captured the Kisei title, he held the top four titles at the same time, a feat no one else has ever accomplished. At one time or another he has held every one of the seven major titles, the Grand Slam of professional go. Although he is a Korean citizen, he lives in Japan and is a member of the Japan Go Association. Among his hobbies are golf and swimming.

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
The recent 2015 re-printing of this book (and the 2nd volume) by Ishi Press Archives appears to have been produced using low quality scans of the original. The diagrams and text are still readable, but there has been no editing or updating. Diagrams which are incorrect in the 1993 edition are still present. While the contents may still merit inclusion in a go player's library and used editions are hard to find, it is important to recognize the difference in quality between this edition and the original English translation.
