ChiyoDad's Kyu Review


My friend Alan suggested that I do some reviews of beginners' Go books. It's an idea that I had considered before but I felt this was far above me since I'm just a newbie wallowing in the lower kyus.

But it does make a lot of sense. If a book was written to help a beginner improve, it should prove itself in the arena of kyu-level players who have had little to no exposure to pure-strategy board games. If it's too hard for me to grasp, then I'm clearly not in its targeted audience yet.

I won't be able to launch into this right away but you'll be able to look forward to The Kyu Review from yours truly.

Thanks for the idea, Alan!

Great idea! Let me be the first to nominate _Go For Kids_ by Milton N. Bradley, from Yutopian.

No problem, Chiyodad. Looking forward to your reviews.

Go For Kids will probably be best reviewed by ChiyoChan (my daughter). I'll see if I can find a copy through our library system.
