"Barlow's cribbage books are easily the most readable of those currently in print." -- Cribbage Forum

Format: Paperback
At 96 pages, I wasn't expecting this to be so useful, but it doesn't waste pages explaining the rules and how to add up points. It assumes you already play cribbage, and concentrates on the area of the game in which the player has the most control, the play of the hand. If you want a book that does have the rules and basics, try Play Cribbage to Win by the same author, different publisher. And if you want to tackle really complex aspects of the game, try Winning Cribbage Tips and/or Miracles on 4th Street. They're all excellent.

If you are looking for a book that explains the rules of cribbage or basic cribbage strategies - this is not it. This is a book for experienced cribbage players who are looking to improve their game. The book focuses almost entirely on how to peg more points. I thought it was great. I consider myself an experienced cribbage players and within a few minutes of picking up the book I learned that some of my pegging strategies were hurting my game. This is exactly what I was looking for.

It's not a long book and I have read quickly through it twice already. In two passes, I've had at least three "Oh, right!" moments and it has already changed the way I discard to the crib and play. A simple and detailed explanation of logic behind cribbage.

I'd rank this as the best of Barlow's cribbage books, though some others might choose Miracles on 4th Street. Both titles include a hefty dose of Barlow's cribbage strength, which is end-game evaluation. Cribbage for Experts, with a little bit wider focus and a bit more accessible of a format, is probably the second or third cribbage book players should acquire, DeLynn Colvert's Play Winning Cribbage still being the best.

A good book, but not the final word on cribbage. There are newer and more effective strategies than given here. And, cribbage can be played differently - it's not all cut and dry. A good beginning here though.

If you are serious about improving your cribbage play, especially the pegging aspects, this is a must-read book. At least you will get to learn what you are doing wrong!

I bought this book for my husband as a christmas gift and even though he is a life-long cribbage player, he thought it was a pretty good resource.
