Van de achterflap van het boek:
" Most go books are top heavy with text and endless explanatory diagrams. Ishida's approach in this book is the opposite - large diagrams, simple explanations, a minimum of mind-numbing text - yet this is the most successful attempt in the go literature to convey to go players of all levels the secrets of building thickness and making effective use of influence.
How do you build thickness? What areas of the board should you aim to control? In which direction do stones exert their force? How close should you approach a strong enemy position? How many points can you expect to convert a thick position into? The answers to these and many other questions will be apparent at a glance when you read this book.
'All about Thickness', the first book of its kind, was a best-seller in Japan. Go players around the world should find the English version just as enlightening as Japanese go fans."
