Bob McGuigan: Actually, Go Seigen has authored many many books. Several of the titles above are Chinese versions of books first published in Japan. Amazon.co.jp lists 57 titles, some of which are out of print, but there are many others so far out of print that Amazon doesn't list them.

choreck: Anyone knows about "Ibun Kaiyu" (Go Seigen's autobiography) book, which is mentioned at [ext] http://www.msoworld.com/mindzine/news/orient/go/special/goseigen.html. ?

Bob McGuigan: Here is some bibliographical information:
