About the Author
Janice Kim was born in Illinois in 1969. She became the first female student at the Korean Go Academy and entered the professional dan ranks in Korea in 1987, the first Westerner ever to do so. She won the Fuji Women's Championship in 1984, took second place in the World Youth Championship in 1985, and third place in the EBS Cup in 1994. In 1998 she represented the US in the Bohae Cup. She was promoted to 3 dan in 2003. After graduating from New York University, Ms. Kim authored the five books of the Learn to Play Go series and founded the online Go company Samarkand. In 2008, in an effort to explore similarities in strategy games, she played in the World Poker Tour's Women's Championship in Las Vegas and placed fourth. She currently resides in the San Francisco bay area with her husband and two children.

If you are looking for a book that will make you an instant expert in the game of GO than you are mistaken. I have learned reading this book, and attempting to practice the stategies taught that this book provides you with an introduction.
The book also states that to really improve your skills you will need to study the moves in this book. I find that this is only have of the truth. You will need to study the moves and strategies and play, play, play. Learn to use them, and most importantly learning to see them.
I found the book very interesting and I would recommend it to anyone interested in the game of GO. I will be purchasing the second book just as soon as I have learned all I can from the first.
My only critque is that, as a series, the books tend to be a bit repetitive and do not delve much into more complicated strategy.
