I certainly agree that it is an “entertaining” book, in the sense that it is more anecdotal and less structured and objective than most other go books, that seem a bit more like textbooks, if you will.
I consider it a bit of a book on philosophy of Go, more than something you would pick up to improve on a specific area of the game.
Haven’t been physically there in a while, as I don’t live in the Netherlands anymore.
It’s worth it just to drool over some nice japanese boards and stones, and they carry a great book selection.
I forget “Attack and Defence”. There’s a local 3-dan that says it’s the only book you need to read in order to reach his level. YMMV
Again, not a beginner’s book.
Probably one of the best in the west world, too. Couple times I’ve tried to track books and found them only there.
