I'm putting together a shopping list of a few new books to get my gf up to speed on modern backgammon. One I'm considering as a basic is Backgammon For Blood by Chris Bray.
Oddly there was another book with the same title by Bruce Becker
that's in my old collection and is awful (example of classical bad Becker advice is to slot the seven and nine points on an opening role of 6-4).
Are these books related? If their not would anyone advise the Bray book as a good first read?
PS I already have Robertie's "Backgammon For Serious Players" and will get his "Backgammon For Winners" along with his "501 Essential Problems" books. The latter is to get my game back up to speed but I'm hoping gf will get decent starting with the other two and perhaps one more.
