The Way of Tori Shogi
Book by Dave Brandl and Bill Croke
"Here, in the space of just about 100 pages is a complete description of the game of Tori Shogi, an introduction to the strategy of playing the game and a selection of complete games for the new player to study. Not only that, we also gain insights into the history of Chess (Japanese and European), learn about the history of the Silk Road, and are enlightened about the philosophy of the way of life of the Samurai warrior via the text of The Book of Five Rings. Wonderful!
"This is the first comprehensive description of Tori Shogi published in English and may well be the first serious book in any language."
