Are book recommendations on-topic for Board and Card Games? I didn't see a specific reference in the FAQ or in Meta.BaCG about this.
I know many (most?) of the SE sites discourage or disallow questions asking for book recommendations, as they are generally non-constructive.
However, with some games there is an extensive literature, some of which is very topic specific.
Can anyone recommend a book on how to learn to play Go?
should be closed as non-constructive, as answers would be opinion based.
But what about one like,
I have read a few beginner Go books, and think I have a handle on the scenarios/problems they present, but I am still having trouble with actual gameplay. Is there a beginner's book that focus more on "how to play" rather than on beginner problems, but is not overwhelming to a new Go player?
