Backgammon for Blood

Backgammon for Blood
Becker
1975

I had no idea that backgammon was a blood sport.

I have never played backgammon, so I can’t speak to the quality of this book.The title is kind of cool, so points for that. I did take a look at the beginning chapters and still didn’t quite “get it”.  I’m not very quick on picking up games.

As a weeding candidate, unless the rules have changed or the tone or vocabulary is dated, I wouldn’t necessarily toss this. Given that the book is over 40 years old, it’s not too bad.

Submitter: I weeded this book from my high school library immediately upon seeing it–way back in 1990. For some reason, however, I can’t seem to throw it away. It’s just too awful and each photo is better/worse than the previous one.

Uncharacteristically for high schoolers, there are no drawings or comments in the book, which is ripe for that sort of thing. Great conversation starter!

Submitter: Recently weeded from my small rural public library. I did not weed because of content or even because of the title, but really because of lack of circs and we’re starting to get very overcrowded on our Adult NF shelves. Does there really need to be an entire book on this subject? I would think this subject can be covered in a few paragraphs in any good hiking/camping/survival book. Oh, and I learned something here that I apparently didn’t learn in Sunday School decades ago: the Bible has a verse telling you what to do with your excrement. Huh… who knew?
