This “book” is 37 pages of double spaced, size 14pt font, ramblings of a person who has a limited grasp of the game of Go. Numerous typos and grammatical errors do not help the author attempt to confusingly explain the rules of Go. This pamphlet also lacks simple black and white photo examples of Go problems. Complete waste of my money and half an hour of my time. DO NOT BUY!
Very happy with my purchase, the instructions are really clear and easy to understand. If you enjoy the game and want to become a better player or want to learn how to play, I would definitely recommend this book.
It is for a beginner but in no ways does it teach you levels of understanding deeper than very basic beginner stuff so the whole expert half of the title is a straight up lie. If you know the very basic rules of go this is not for you at all, look somewhere else to learn more advanced thing than what KO and being in atari means...
