David Carlton's [ext] review

LordOfPi: The book, volume 3, has 44 pages and deals mainly about different kinds of moyos and how to reduce them efficiently. It talks about moyos around different corner enclosures and Hoshi - formations (i.e. Hoshi with knight's move extension). The book also explains various attachments on corner enclosures and how and when to use them.
I found this book quite hard but it helped me (especially the descriptions of those funny looking shimari attachments that I never really understood). The book is probably suited best for the 10k-5k range. I wouldn't recommend to read it before 10k.
