Art of Connecting Stones, by Wu Piao and Yu Xing.
Yutopian Y9; 1996.
This is the first volume in Yutopian's The Art of Go
series. It's a collection of problems in five chapters, on
Connecting at the Edge of the Board, Linking up by Capturing
Stones, Utilizing Support From Friendly Forces, Endgame Moves, and
a catch-all chapter. Each chapter starts with easier problems and
moves on to harder ones, so you learn by doing. It seems good.
It's quite hard, so I'd recommend it mostly for dan-level players
or quite strong kyu-level players, but it's nice to see a more
advanced tesuji book available in English. The only nit that I
have to pick is that the diagrams are really ugly, but you learn
to ignore that quite quickly.
