188.8.131.52: Biographies of Go players
(2012-08-21 04:59) [#9586]
Does anyone know of book-length biographies of Go players in English? I'd most like to find a bio of Go Seigen but would be interested in any and all. I'm looking for books that are compilations of games, but actually biographies. Thanks!

John Fairbairn's books are also worth mentioning. They do not generally match the detail of a dedicated biography, but include much more than mere game commentaries.
You should also get the GoGoD CD if you have not already done so--there is extensive information and essays about a great many players. --Hyperpape
