As such, they provide examples of good play tesuj both Black and White. A superb book to teach the tactics of Go. From the “Basic Techniques” chapter on 4-stone handicap go, the only thing I remembered was that sometimes it was a good idea to sacrifice a stone to let you play several moves in sente — but I actually used that in a game soon after!
