Every go player will find this brilliant and well-organized survey of all the important joseki patterns in contemporary go an indispensable study tool and reference work. It is a thorough updating and complete rewriting of the Yoshio Ishida Dictionary of Basic Joseki published in the mid-70s. It covers not only the long-established josekis familiar to players of all levels but also the many new variations of old josekis that have been developed in recent decades, inc1uding the first decade of the 21 st century. This, the second of two volumes, covers the star point, and the 5-3,5-4, and 3-3 points. In particular, there has been great innovation in star-pointjosekis in recent decades, so the coverage has been considerably expanded, compared to the Ishida dictionary. Like that work, it thoroughly analyses the various components of josekis, such as tesujis and good style and good shape, and focusses in depth on such themes as securing momentum and building influence. Eachjoseki listed is backed up by numerous diagrams exploring alternative moves and mistakes, to ensure that the reader understands the joseki fully. Consequently, this work is unrivalled

as alueid and comprehensive primer injoseki theory. The author, Shinji Takao, is a top Japanese professional who has held both the Honinbo and Meijin titles. His book retains the variations from its predecessor that are relevant to contemporary play but also gives countless new variations, reflecting the widespread innovations generated by professional go in the Far East in the last three decades.

If there is one book every go player should have in his or her library, this is it.
