Books on domino games

There are many books on domino games. The ones listed here are not necessarily the best. The most common reason is that I happen to own them, or that a visitor like you mailed a description. I have tried to add a description which allows you to make up your own mind.

Also, I'm glad I am able to provide with a direct link to:
