"The subject of the book is how to play a roll of 31 in various opening positions occurring during the first three rolls of the
game. [..] Explanations, backed up by extensive computer (bot) rollouts, are lucid and insightful. There's never room for doubt
about the intended meaning; [..] Production quality is excellent (solid hardcover with attractive dust jacket). Presentation
is likewise excellent. [..] I recommend Backgammon Openings: Book A to all backgammon players, from the rankest beginner to
the strongest expert. I congratulate Nack Ballard and Paul Weaver on a fine effort. All the years and labor spent on it are
justified." – Marty Storer, GoU, 15 Jan 2008
"I recommend 'Backgammon Openings' to everyone (like myself) who thought he already knew how to play the openings and responses. This book will improve your various backgammon skills." – Masayuki Mochizuki
