I am looking at the five Kaplan's books - what a treasure Vladimir Mikhaylovich left for all of us!

Actually Shotgun says there are seven books!
With that I will leave it to him to list them.

On a side note - which book is the best?
The five books that I have are in various conditions - some look like new and others are well worned out. The heaviest used book is "Typical Sacrifices" - I declare it the best Kaplan's book!

According to my list of books written by Vladimir Kaplan, there were seven in number. They are Titled, The Art Of American Pool Checkers, Strive To Be Superior, The Tactics Of American Pool Checkers, Play Checkers And Win, Tournament Checkers, The Key To A success At American Checkers, and American Checkers, The Middle Of The Game. Which one is the best? I would have to give an indirect answer. At my level of play, I found all seven to be very informative. But for beginners, I recommend that they begin reading The Art Of American Pool Checkers before going onto the others.
