    Backgammon Giant John O’Hagan states, “CBG is both a student and teacher’s textbook. The stitched hardcover full-color presentation is designed for long-term repeated reference. The inside flaps contain numerous tables and formulas that the student can access easily and repeatedly. Chapter and sub-chapter topics are shown within each page’s header to help the reader find specific information. Each concept is supported by numerous examples. For example, “Board Strength” contains eight examples, presented in increasing order of difficulty. Also, throughout CBG, subtle differences in position or score are presented to emphasize the underlying concepts and demonstrate how they affect the correct play.” — PrimeTime Backgammon Magazine
