Love the Book?

Nice Book

I really loved reading the book and would recommend it to anyone wanting to learn the game.

Excited to Play!

I’d never played the game, but so many in my family do. In just a few short hours I now feel confident I could play and even teach the basics.

The book has really convenient bolded words which can be referenced in the glossary, colored pictures, and helpful reminders throughout.

A very quick and easy read. I’m excited to play!

GREAT START FOR ANY BEGINNING PLAYER!

As someone who has a group I started in April called Mah Jongg For Beginners, I would definitely recommend this book to all our new players. With a Step-by-Step Guide in how to play the game and illustrations that solidify play, it’s the perfect book for beginners. We have now updated our name to Mah Jongg for Beginners & More as our group has grown to over 100 players. It’s obvious this is a game that people want to learn.

An Excellent Resource

Debbie’s new book will prove to be an excellent resource for the beginning Mah Jongg player. The formatting with the large print, logical presentation, highlighting, and illustrations make it easily usable. The Table of Contents and Glossary help the reader quickly find the information they need to be a successful player. I recommend that instructors teaching a group of beginners encourage their students to purchase it.

I’d like to add that Unlocking the Secrets of American Mah Jongg can also serve as a valuable review for the seasoned player who thinks they know how to play Mah Jongg. The presentation makes the book easy and enjoyable to browse. I’m pleased to have a copy on my Mah Jongg bookshelf.

Love my First Mah Jongg Book!

Love, love this Mah Jongg book! It’s super easy to follow with large font (thank you!), beautiful and clear pictures for ease in understanding. The explanations, examples and directions are clear and concise! I will keep this book close by for quick reference at EVERY game. Thank you so much Debbie, for writing this book and adding the fun quizzes. I’ve learned so much!

Advanced players too

I’ve been playing for 3 years and this book was a great refresher for me and gave me strategies for playing more defensively.

Definitely a Winner!

I received your book and think it is great. The format is easy to read and the verbiage is easy to understand. Thank you so much. This book will really help my game!

Great for “beginners” and Great for “seasoned” Mah Jongg Players

I found this book, Unlocking the Secrets of American Mah Jongg, to be a “must have” resource for any new person wanting to learn the game. Not only is it good for beginners but it is an excellent “refresher course” for seasoned players. Debbie has meticulously explained the fine details of the game so that all ages can understand the procedure for playing Mah Jongg. I am teaching my 12 year old granddaughter how to play and this book is invaluable! Thank you Debbie for such a wonderful teaching tool!!!
