Some people prefer printed reference material to online content, and although books on the subject of backgammon are hard to find in local bookstores you can find many excellent and up-to-date books written by today's top players and available through
various web-based booksellers.
Some of these books are listed below (in no particular order):
Backgammon for Dummies by Chris Bray. Recommended for beginners.
Backgammon by Marc Brockmann Olsen.
Backgammon: Pure Strategy by Marc
Backgammon: From Basics to Badass by Marc Brockmann Olsen.
Backgammon by Paul Magriel. Recommended for all levels of play.
Opening Concepts by Michihito Kageyama and Roland Herrera.
Endgame Technique by Michihito
Kageyama and Roland Herrera.
Caveat: Many 2nd hand books are available on Ebay/Amazon (other online stores are available!). Please be aware that books written before 1990 will contain some suggested plays, ideas and strategies that are no longer recommended
or correct. Neural network programming since around 1992 has advanced current day theory behind correct play.
