4.0 out of 5 stars Good but can use some tweaking, July 31 2001

This review is from: The Book of Mah Jong: An Illustrated Guide (Paperback)
A unique book which covers traditional Cantonese, Shanghainese, 12-tile (13th-wild), and Taiwanese variations of mah jong. Scoring of hands are described in the translated English as well as the equivalent Chinese dialect (through Chinese characters and pin yin). Most other books address play and scoring using Western or Japanese standards, where as this book best describes the game that is played by my family.
Diagrams are useful in explaining the hands, but unfortunately in some cases the diagrams are misplaced in the layout and not labelled properly for best clarity.
The book is in paperback now. I hope that it sells well enough to garner a second edition.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have..., Feb. 27 2004

...if you intend to play the game the way the majority of the people on the planet play it. Oddly this is the only book readily available in English that does so. She could do a better job explaining the seemingly arcane scoring system, but for the most part this was a much appreciated addition to my library.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good addition to the Mahjongg library, Feb. 14 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: The Book of Mah Jong: An Illustrated Guide (Paperback)
This book has excellent graphics. Good introduction to the 3 variations of the game without all the complications added by Western players using the American/Jewish or Officers Wives clubs.
