"Big League Checkers" was his final work and was published after his death.

:lol: It is certainly nice to hear from you again Bob. You should not be such a stranger here on the ACF Forum. Willie Ryan's Big League Checkers is a fine checker book that we all enjoy browsing through, but unfortunately it is not the answer to our "Checker Trivia" question. :lol: "Merry Christmas" to you and your family. Ms. Becky (Cont.)

(I'm filling in again for Mr. Checkers and Ms. Becky)

In 1978 the COLES PUBLISHING COMPANY, Toronto - Canada, published "Play Winning Checkers" by W. F. Ryan, this was the last of Willie's books (aside from the Don Goodwin reprints) to be published, it was printed as a paperback. This is the same book as Willie's 1934 book Scientific Checkers Made Easy", John C. Winston Company - Chicago, which was only sold in a hard cover format with dust jacket.

You can read "A Master's Advice to Beginners" taken from Scientific Checkers Made Easy, by William F. Ryan, here at the ACF web-site.

Read a review of both books by Bob Newell.

I found some interesting reading about the COLES PUBLISHING COMPANY at a chess web-site, check it out.
