Most books on Go are written in one of the Chinese, Japanese, or Korean languages. This makes them somewhat less accessible to the majority of western Go enthusiasts.

There are a number of web sites devoted to books about Go. Among these are:

The [ext] Dewey Decimal Classification DDC for Go books is 794.4.

The [ext] Universal Decimal Clasification UDC is confusingly 794.2 (Board games not dependent on chance other than chess).

Each of us is different in our approach to Go, our experience of the game, our likes and dislikes. So... What is your favorite Go Book? On the other hand, What is your least favorite Go Book?

Apart from these books on playing Go, there are also some Non-Fiction publications involving go, Literature, and other References to Go. In addition, [ext] Ritchie Press has published many Go books on how to become a very strong player: Get Strong at Go Parodies.
