  Book Reviews "My recollection is that the technical content is nothing extraordinary, even for 70's standards (Magriel is much better), but that the sections on cube handling, gambling strategy, and general bg "psychology" make it a really interesting marker of the 'state' of the game as played by 'serious' players back then. By today's standards, the advice is pretty vague and impressionistic. If I had the time I'd dig it up and give some examples." – Albert Steg, rec.games.backgammon, November 1996
