19th Lifetime Meijin Habu gives key comments to each of the 80 games. He writes: "The first game given here was played about 300 years ago, so the reader will be able to understand the strategy of shogi from the Edo period to the modern era...A key point of modern shogi is quick development...Beautiful structure is strong structure. I hope a great many people will discover the width and depth of shogi. I too have discovered so many interesting games in working on this book project."
