Mark356: This book consists of two game reviews: Lee Changho vs. Rin Kaiho, in the 1992 Tongyang Securities Cup, a game that made Changho famous outside of Korea (available at [ext]; and Lee Changho vs. Chang Hao in the 1998 Fujitsu Cup, a game that showed the world how powerful he can be even against aggressive players who understand his style (available at [ext]

The book is actually a transcript of study sessions, where the author replayed the games for his students. So it has all of the little questions and sub-discussions you'd expect when a teacher is explaining a game to students (e.g. "Where would you move here?" or "What do you think of this move?"). He also often takes a detour to explain alternate ways to play out a sequence, or what might happen if you change the order of the moves. Plus, as an amateur 7 dan, he notices a whole lot more than I would. Some moves contain hidden threats that force a response in a completely different part of the board, and without his explanation, those moves would just look like tenuki to me. In other words, it's a clear, chatty, and relatively thorough game commentary, no more or less.
