Book Description:Unlike many Go books, which deal with problems of the life and death of groups, this book discloses the theory and philosophy behind the type of problem.
By using the theory of tsumego, Valery Shikshin teaches you how to look in the right direction for a correct solution; this will prevent you from making mistakes and, in the long run, it will save you a lot of time.
There are more than 300 tsumego problems and examples laid out in this book, emphasizing the rules behind killing and saving groups in the corners and on the sides, including tsumego involving seki and ko.
