Spirit: An interesting book of otherwise very hard to obtain material. The games records list seems to be almost exhaustive though a few games seem to be missing. There's no commentary on any of the moves which is a shame but it nevertheless fills a gap in any serious go player's collection. I obtained my copy through Schaak en Go Winkel het Paard in Amsterdam after specifically requesting it.
