Players at the right level for In The Beginning and Tesuji probably won’t get much out of reading this book, since it basically just presents a lot of sequences players should be familiar with without in-depth explanations.
As a reference, this book is clearly less complete than Ishida Yoshio’s Dictionary of Basic Joseki, and doesn’t add much value beyond the freely available Kogo’s Joseki Dictionary. It’s not a bad read, if you are feeling lost about joseki, but it i Poorly placed in the series.
It’s not a bad read, if you josekj feeling lost about joseki, but it is not the best option available.

This book provides explains some basic josekis.
But be warned that these josekis may have variations beyond what is explained in the book. For those you might want to take a look at Kogo’s joseki dictionary. As in any Go book, some of the diagrams might be too dense, especially if you are at the beginner level.
For those cases, you might want to use a Go board. Alternatively, an interactive version of this book in SmartGo books: Aug 20, Jdl rated it really liked it Shelves: I skimmed this at 12 kyu, because a player of that level really should not be trying to memorize joseki.
I still refer to it during my post-game analysis. It is very useful to read the commentary on joseki that occurred in my games after the fact.
Certainly, 38 joseki isn’t remotely exhaustive, but the point of this book is to explain why certain positions are joseki. A player who is willing to study the variations and commentary in this book will be able to apply those principles even when the s I skimmed this at 12 kyu, because a player of that level really should not be trying to memorize joseki.
A player who is willing to study the variations and commentary in this book will be able to apply those principles even when the stones aren’t in exactly the same position as the examples. It stresses understanding over memorization, which I liked. Dec 28, cook added it Shelves: A lot of people seem to give this book bad talk because of how limited it is. I think “38 basic joseki” should have told you that. I don’t mean this in a rude way. Its just to give a foundation of joseki to go on from there.
If you don’t really know much of any joseki its a fine book to get a basic ideas of how joseki work. Granted it been a long time since I read it. For reference book of joseki there much better ones. Feb 11, Andrew rated it it was ok Shelves: The content is extremely dry; just like any other joseki book it runs through a whole bunch of them and their variations.
Probably better as a reference than something to read. Jan 28, Steve added baaic. Mar 21, Tim rated it it was amazing. They say you lose two stones memorizing joseki and gain 4 by studying them. Same as learning programming, studying semantics beats memorizing syntax. Mar 29, Fernando Torre rated it really liked it Shelves: Very good introduction to a variety of basic joseki.
It’s a good way to get some exposure to joseji of them.
