Master of Go

The Master of Go - Yasunari Kawabata This book does something that few books about games can manage. He takes an historical game, and includes all of the moves of that game, and makes these moves a core part of a great novel that deals with many themes. I can definitely understand that this book may not be very appealing to someone who doesn't know anything about the game of go going into it, but it remains a great accomplishment.
