During the time when Yi Sedol took a year off from professional baduk in 2009, he was urged by his brother Yi Sang-hun to write a book, the results of which is this wonderful set of 3 books with Yi Sedol’s detailed self-commented game records. In each book, he chose 3 games and discussed his thoughts on the progress of each game every few moves. As these commentaries are totally completed by Yi Sedol, we gain valuable insights into what makes him the top player he is today. It took Yi Sedol around 8 months to complete this project with the help his sister Yi Se Na who helped him write the text.

    I think that this is one of the most important contemporary books in need of Western translation.

    I’ll be trying to get this translated in a few years, if not done so already by then.
