- Backgammon - 2004 Edition by Paul Magriel - truly a classic and considered to be a "bible" of one of our favorite games. By Magriel, one of the biggest names in the game.
- 501 Essential Backgammon Problems by Bill Robertie - this is a nice format. You can study the problems -- and soon you get a feel for how you should be thinking in various situations.
- Classic Backgammon Revisited by Jeremy Bagai - A well-received book with good reviews. Jeremy looks at some "classic" thought in the game (when the game was popular in the 70's/80's) and brings the game into the 21st century with good analysis aided by Snowie, GNU, Jellyfish -- and other software/analytical tools.
- Backgammon for Blood by Chris Bray - Great for beginners as well as intermediate and advanced players. A quick and juicy read, as the title suggests. Packed with info!
