Complete Backgammon (Paperback)
"Backgammon is a contest in mathematics. Throughout the progress of a game, the laws of mathematical chances, probabilities, permutations, etc., operate inexorably in the long run. The one who wins is he who most intelligently employs the law of averages, and the loser is he who finds the probabilities working against him because he does not understand them." First published in 1931 (and reprinted in 1940), Complete Backgammon offers strategies for both the beginner and advanced player.
