Even better the second time through

Even better the second time through!
As a beginner with no play experience of any kind, I read through it quickly but I was not following most of the reasoning. However, now that the computer resigns to me some of the time (with handicap, of course) I picked the book up again and it means so much more to me, now. Awesome! I had forgotten that the author said to only read so far, go play (lose a 100 games?), then come back. He was so right!
I really like the format of following different levels of games from opening to scoring with detailed explanations of each move, even with variations.
Anyone learning Go will want more than one beginning book as they seem to present the material in different ways and stress different aspects of the game.
I highly recommend 'Go! More Than a Game' be one of them!
