Book Review: 38 Basic Joseki
As a more advanced player, I had more baslc for the unique josekis they showed. After devouring the first book I quickly ordered the second book, 38 Basic Josekis, hoping for another stellar book to improve my go playing. I think most players may have flipped through it briefly and sometimes refer to it for some clarification on a joseki but bxsic moved on to the third book of the series Tesuji as I did.
