Since the arrival on the market of Patricia Thompson and Betty Maloney's two previous books, The Game of Mah Jong Illustrated and Improve Your Mah Jong, a wide range of hands from many parts of the world has been sent to them. In this player's companion the authors have put together a cross-filled reference guide where over 120 hands, illustrated in colour, can be quickly identified by following the flip-top headings on each page. A full synopsis of each hand is included. The extra hands give an international flavour to the book, adding new interest and challenges.

About the Author

Patricia Thompson and Betty Maloney are well established experts in Mah Jong and have written several books on the game.

          Essential book, as I am a beginner Mah Jong player. I would have liked some details, e.g. "how to play" for real beginners. However, the display/collection of possible games is wonderful, and well collated.
