The book The Best Of Board Wargaming by Nicholas Palmer, published in 1980 by Hippocrene Books.

According to the publisher:

Following the success of The Comprehensive Guide to Board Wargaming, Nicholas Palmer's second book tackles the problems posed by the rapid expansion of this interest from the player's point of view.

The first part of the book surveys whole sections of the hobby and future design trends to give both experienced and novice wargamers a lucid overview of the different games in each category. Operational games, science fiction, monsters and unashamedly light-hearted games -- each type has a distinct appeal and individual games of the better-known variety are used as examples toprovide a taste of the many and civerse elements in simulation. Nicholas Palmer's predictions for the future of wargaming, including computers, professional military application of simulation games and the thorny issue of realism, combine to make this an essential handbook for all levels of players.

The immensely popular review section of Nicholas Palmer's first book has now been thoroughly updated and expanded to furnish enthusiasts with a classified breakdown of consistently popular and lesser-known wargames currently on the market. Contributions from expert players in each area of wargaming are brought together with an overall rating system which will be invaluable in guiding the reader to the games he will most enjoy -- and away from the alluring packages with hidden flaws.

The book is very good condition.
