This book changed my game for the good. This book is for the absolute beginner, and would be an excellent starter book. Author stresses an exciting game style that lifts the volume of play for a player like myself who has played a while but without much skilled instruction. The discussion of opening moves in the book was excellent, it was also about a philosophy of play. I enjoyed sitting at the table with my board out playing along with the illustrative games in the book. I will definately read more books by the author.Understandable,interesting,well communicated.

Backgammon for Winners greatly improved my backgammon game. I went from being a complete beginner (having played only enough times to have synthesized the rules, but not to gain strategy) to winning against nearly every opponent I play (from beginner to nearly-advanced, I would garner). I also understand how to continue improving in the future if I choose to take the time to do so.
