Good book. I have to use my board while reading it.There seem to be some errors between moves and illustration: frustrating at times!Published 5 months ago by Herb
I love the material, but I found it a little difficult to follow. Makes it easier if you have a real board in front of you to follow along.Published 22 months ago by Henry W.
