Robert Jasiek's [ext] review

Calvin: I have this book, having purchased it from Velirun's before that site went defunct. It's excellent for the mid-kyu level, and does not require really any Korean to understand. Since the word haengma is overused, I should clarify that this book contains examples of the basic moves for developing stones. There are lots of examples of when you would nobi, use a diagonal move or a one point jump. The larger jumps, such as ogeima, get relatively little coverage. Examples are taken from both jungsuk and whole board positions.

Bill: Just a note. This is a book about haengma. That's not the same thing as shape
