184.108.40.206: What books to turn to next?
(2007-04-09 19:47) [#3275]
Lately I've been feeling like I need new books. I've read through the Elementary Go Series, Lessons in the Fundamentals of Go, and have the three volumes of the Dictionary of Basic Joseki to browse through and/or reference.
My problem is that I don't really feel like going through these books is helping me anymore. Some of the toughet problems still take me a while, but I don't really feel like I'm learning anything, so I've been looking at other books to read. However, I can't really figure out where I should turn to next.
The Direction of Play?
The Middle Game of Go?
Thanks for your suggestions!

Anonymous: You don't say anything about it, but how much do you play, and do you analyse your games afterwards or get comments from a stronger player? Unfortunately you are unlikely to improve just from reading books. You have to try out what you read in actual play.
I'd also recommend studying pro games and trying to see the things you've read about in action.
