|Algebraic Edition of Must-Have Classic May 14, 2008|
|I'm glad to have the algebraic edition of this timeless classic. Since attack is what chess is mainly about, this book is perhaps as essential as such cornerstones as "My System." Surely a must-have for anyone rated 1500+.|
|TOO MUCH HYPE May 9, 2008|
|From the reviews I have read , I thought this book would improve my play . Note this is my interest -- I want to win games . I could care less if my attacking technique improves if I end up losing the game . I hope anyone reading this agrees with me . This is exactly the fault of this book . It teaches you ONLY attacking techniques that if not properly undertaken may cost you the game . Reading this book actually made my play loose . I had to look for desperate ways to get at opponent's king as my own position had too many holes . Needless to say I was under lot of pressure in my games due to aggressive attacking play . My verdict -- this book could decrease your rating in chess . Please take the reviews you read with a grain of salt . One man's meat is another man's poison . |
|Amazing advanced book Nov 22, 2007|
|great for about 1800+ rating players dont buy this as your first book it is too advanced .. this will get your attack working and winning|
|Any player should buy this book, should be 6 or 8 stars Oct 10, 2007|
|This book is a super-classic, though no exercises to test, this does not matter,|
as this is not just a book of puzzles and so no need to give exercises for you to solve. In fact it is a bible of attack. After reading this book, your attacking power would be much, much improved and when solving those puzzles by John Nunn, Gallagher, combination motifs, manual of combinatioin etc, those previous difficult puzzels you cannot solve, may now be seem to be easy to you!!! Just look the the numerous reprints, so can have an idea how great this book is!!!! Now with the book in Algaebraic system, then there is no excuse not to buy it!!!!!!
|Great book for chess enthusiasts May 14, 2007|
|I found this book to be very helpful in learning how to navigate the middlegame better. The concepts are very well organized. Beginners may find this book too complex and involved, but for those who seriously want to get better at chess this book is a must have!|
