I have been through a number of backgammon books. This one covers it all very nicely. Every puzzle has a hint. Every solution has a little nugget learned to remember it by. Positions that are close but different are adequately explored. Half the book is best move. Half the book is whether to double or not. Really easy to follow, and useful even to expert players looking to see if they really have it all covered.
