Kage's Secret Chronicles of Handicap Go, by Kageyama Toshiro. Ishi G17; 1975.

This book contains nine handicap games, ranging from two to five stones. Most of the games are pro-pro. At key spots in each games, they give you three possible next moves to choose from. If you've read Kageyama's Lessons in the Fundamentals of Go, you'll recognize the chatty style; this one also includes lots of talking between the two players. There's no general theory presented in the book, just the games.

The book is certainly amusing and fun to read; I don't know how much it will improve your game, though.
