After more than 30 years, this book is still a classic. Joseki is NOT the first thing a new player should study, it will just confuse you and lead you astray. However, once you reach single digit kyu, it is a good idea to start looking at them. This book gives a good overview of useful joseki, and provides an ideal introduction to the topic. I generally recommend it be read later on in this series. I tell my students to start with Life and Death, then Tesuji, then In The Beginning, then Attack and Defense, and then this book.

There are much more modern books on joseki, but this book provides a solid overview. I also recommend reading the information on Gobase dot org, look on the left, under Browsing, and then Joseki for their list of 25 important joseki. After that, use this book to explain why, and when, the 25 joseki on that site are useful.

I had reached a plateau as a perpetual beginner at GO (stranded somewhere around 15 kyu): many years of very casual play with little improvement. I realized only recently that this was going to require more STUDY and more patience. This volume was among a handful, therefore, that I have found truly transformative. The explanations of Joseki here teach an important critical lesson about reading the WHOLE BOARD in choosing from among the choices available in early moves. That lesson is one that transcends the limited glossary of Joseki described within, and teaches you how to think GO. For a comprehensive encyclopedia of Joseki, there are dozens of good online sites (try "Sensei's Library", for example). None of them can lead you by the hand to re-imagining the board the way this text does.

Needless to say, this book would have been useless to me if I was a slightly weaker player (weak as I am) and were I not ready for some DISCIPLINE, working over and over at combinations and trying to learn how to read. This series is, in general, commendable for that level of play and thinking about Joseki, in the way described here, improved my game across the board. Certainly knocked my game up several stones. Good for early intermediate players who are ready to study; great in combination with Ishigure's "In the Beginning".

Initially, I got all the other volumes in the Elementary Go Series, but skipped this one based on some of the mediocre reviews that it got here. I bought one of the alternative joseki references instead.
After a while, I came back and bought this book. While some of the other reviewers have downrated this book for covering only a limited set of joskei, I found that to be precisely what I needed.
By sticking with a set of the most basic joseki, I find that I get less overwhelmed by the sheer number of possibilities, and I also find that the book is able to spend more time explaning each one. This gives me more of a chance to grasp the underlying concepts. It's less of a reference book and more of a textbook.
So, I plan to come back to the more complete reference books later. But when you're just trying to get your hands around the material, this is the place to start.

Excellent book for Go lovers; if you are into this game I fully recommend this book (all the series) to you. Amazon price is the best in the market.

When you start to get serious this is the best start. "Corner's first, side second. Centre last." So start with some Josekis.
