Richard Hunter completes the “Road to Understanding Japanese” series with volume 3. If you want to learn to read Japanese go books, this series as well as “Just Enough Japanese” will get you there.

Available at, awaiting Apple’s approval before you can buy in-app.

“Get Strong at the Opening” by Richard Bozulich is now available in Go Books and SmartGo One, filling in a gap in the ‘Get Strong’ series. The 178 problems will help you develop your positional sense in the opening.

“Get Strong at Handicap Go” is next.

Last day for 20% off at with coupon MINUS20. Website only, but you can read in either SmartGo One or Go Books app on iOS. Available as interactive EPUBs for other devices.

Some go book prices will increase on January 1. If you’re still missing Invincible ($20 → $25), or books in the Graded Go Problems ($7 → $10) or Elementary Go ($10 → $12) series, you can save by buying them now. (Still less than half of print edition – Invincible soft cover is $65.) Some other books will have more modest adjustments.

Go Books currently has two books priced at $20 (and more than worth it):
• “Invincible” by John Power
• “The Life, Games and Commentaries of Honinbo Shuei” by John Fairbairn

Hopefully, will be adding one more $20 book early next year.
