   Very Readable
I have not yet played Mah Jongg and will take classes in February. Based on the reviews, Decided to get a head start with this book. The game itself seems very intimidating with lots of things to remember. So I read the book first, then using the tiles I purchased to practice with while I go through the book a second time. The material is well covered, but like I said, it will take time to understand everything.
