This book is at a similar level to In the Beginning from the Elementary Series, and has attracted very positive reviews for the simple and clear explanations. It sets out 20 strategic principles under three main headings – fuseki, shape and strategy. It takes time and practice to be quite at home with the ideas and many high SDK could still benefit from rereading the book to ensure there are no gaps in understanding.
