About These Books

The books listed below are a few that seem to stand out from the crowd, but you should not think that omission of a title here means we don’t like it. We are human, and can only read so many things, and of those, here are the ones that endured.

Some of these titles are, as you might expect, oriented toward analysis and analytic measures. But there are others that are important for anyone who wants to understand the game as a whole; and, besides being informative, they are interesting and pleasant reading. Have at!

(As noted elsewhere on this site, we are an AbeBooks affiliate, and the links below are to AbeBooks listings for the books, which will include used and, where available, new copies.).
