Takemiya's style of playing go is a free-flowing way of thinking called the cosmic style. It aims at building the largest territorial framework [moyo] possible, by playing directly in the center of the go board, without getting bogged down by conventional ideas about joseki,

Takemiya has selected ten of his games against leading go players and formatted them into a collection of problems designed to demonstrate his famous cosmic style. Many problems deal with the opening which is Indicative of the importance of using one's imagination to the utmost in that phase of the game.

To be as useful as possible as an instructional work for go fans, the material is organized into a question and answer format. The reader is urged to go over these games slowly and carefully, looking to see how each player met the challenge of countering his cosmic style. Read the hints that are given and then carefully consider each situation to sharpen one's own imagination.

Takemiya's hope is that his readers will follow their dreams and win in the way most conducive to their own nature. For even if one loses, it is a simple matter to start all over again. This engaging book captures Takemiya's humor and free-spirit and is filled with his insights and stories on go and life.

The optional teaching CD for use on windows and macintosh computers includes all ten games' problems and answers in an interactive format.
