     "When you think of backgammon problems, really tough ones, think of Mike. ... This book, good as it is, is not the best backgammon book ever written. But it might be the most interesting one!"—Jake Jacobs, Flint Area BackgammoNews, Jan/Feb 2008.


     "I like this book. Mike Corbett is a good writer. He takes you through the process of analyzing a problem in a way that is engaging and entertaining. Many of the problems are ones that computers have difficulty with, so needless to say they are quite difficult. But there is a lot to be learned just by following the author's train of logic. I recommend this book to all intermediates and above."—Tom Keith, December 2008

  QUOTES: "While those who worship at the altar of Snowie might find Mr. Corbett's writing irreverent or sacrilegious, he finds an excellent balance between exposing Snowie's evaluation flaws while respecting its invaluable use as a research tool in this delightful series of well-written articles.
      The backgammon is top notch, but is surpassed by Mike's wry wit and ability to entertain the reader while making his points. Definitely not another soporific, bland treatise on the correct way to play double ones in a long race."—Kent Goulding
