  Book Reviews "[..] Suffice to say the author is a well-qualified and experienced authority. This book marks Lamford's second venture into the backgammon literary market, following in the footsteps of his successful Intermediate/Advanced text '100 Backgammon Puzzles'. [..]
'Starting Out' is obviously targeted squarely at the Novice/Beginner readership, though casual players or those already versed in backgammon variants would find the book an efficient and effective introduction to the formal game. [..]
In my opinion, the main chapters would be considerably enhanced by additional reference problems to augment the scant quiz sections, perhaps a minimum of ten for each game type. Smaller board diagrams for the quiz positions might have enabled more of such material to be crammed into the instructional package. [..]
Virgin players and newcomers to formal backgammon are assured a rewarding read from Lamford's 'Beginners book for the new millennium'." – Mark Driver, GammonVillage, June 2001
