This new book on CD is "Chouette and More: The World's First and Only Backgammon Sci-fi Soap Opera", by Mary Hickey. It includes Mary's entire 44-column series on chouette, originally published online at GammonVillage.com.
Most of these chapters also apply to regular backgammon, and include topics such as when to make the 5-point and when other objectives predominate, rational risk-taking, and dealing with stranded anchors.
There are also three essays about the psychology of backgammon--what it takes to be a champion, the benefits of backgammon, and its psychological traps.
This CD is shipped flat rate via USPS. $5 for continental USA, Canada and Mexico, $8 for international orders.
