Most Helpful Customer Reviews
Elaine Sanberg writes terrific mah jongg books. Her first one, A Beginner's Guide to American Mah Jongg, gives a very clear, understandable explanation of a very complex and engaging game. I read it after I'd been playing for several months and wanted to have a greater knowledge of the game. As soon as I finished the beginner's book I was clamoring to get her strategies book (Winning American Mah Jongg Strategies). It is a smaller book than the first one, and I feared it wouldn't have enough 'meat' in it. I was wrong! It took me a few days to read this book and it's not only improved my game substantially, but has given me added insights I can pass along to the people I am teaching to play this wonderful game. Thank you, Elaine Sandberg...and B&N!
good book if you play American Mah Jongg (NMJL)
