Ninoiaroslav: Not sure if I have created the page correctly, please check.
Ninoiaroslav: I haven't gone through the books in detail, but the layout of the pages is good. I'm happy with the printing. They are the first books of their kind I've seen. I've bought the two volumes hoping they will manage to published the whole set.
Zengarden Three volumes (out of six) have so far been publishsed. All are produced to a high standard, with good, clear text layout and plenty of diagrams. The text was written by Kubori Keiji, (1941-2003) a Go journalist who was very close to Cho. On my reading so far, the game annotations are excellent with lots of interesting biographical information on Cho and his background.
One of the translators is Motoki Noguchi, a Japanese player who writes Go books in French: his "Tsumego" (a book over 500 pages long published by PRAXEO) is easily the best book I have ever read on life and death, tesuji and general fighting in Go. Moguchi was French Go champion in 2008.
