The first in a series of books on the playing styles of top pros by Yuan Zhou. This series is aimed at helping amateurs to understand what it means to have a consistent style of play and to develop their own. In this book, Zhou uses a very thorough analysis of two of Lee Changho's games to clarify why Lee's style is called “calm and solid” and why it is so effective.
This second book in Yuan Zhou's series on the playing styles of top pros deals with the famously difficult style of Go Seigen, the greatest player of the 20th century. Most amateur players are completely mystified by Go's play. Zhou makes clear what he is up to. Having a better understanding of a particular style, even a very difficult one, will help you to develop your own.
