Book Description
 In this large workbook, a standalone companion to How to Reassess Your Chess, Jeremy Silman provides 131 problems designed to test a player's strengths and weaknesses. These problems cover openings, middlegames (both positional and tactical) and endgames. As a player completes one of these problems, he or she may then turn to Mr. Silman's answer, which is always detailed yet never dry. Through this process of problem solving, analysis and advice, a player is led to discover the major flaws embedded in his or her playing. Through this same process, a player is also led to an understanding of Mr. Silman's system of thinking about the game and how it differs from many other popular systems of chess thinking. This workbook may be utilized with or without Silman's earlier book How to Reassess Your Chess. It may be used in the workbook fashion described above, or its section devoted to answers may be read as an instruction manual in itself. However one chooses to read this book, it will surely prove a font of wisdom and insight for all student players. Marketing

Book Description
 John Nunn is one of the most highly regarded chess writers in the world.

Virtually every move is explained using words that everyone can understand. Jargon is avoided as far as possible. Almost all the examples are taken from the 1990s and show how key ideas are handled by the grandmasters of today. The emphasis is on general principles that readers will be able to use in their own games, and detailed analysis is only given where it is necessary. Each game contains many lessons, but to guide the reader through the most important ideas in each phase of the game, the thirty games are grouped thematically into those highlighting opening, middlegame and endgame themes. Anyone interested in learning how to play better chess will benefit from this stepbystep explanation of how chess games are won.

Bobby Fischer Teaches Chess

When I originally wrote this book, I intended it to be for the beginning chess player, regardless of age. The longevity of its availability has proven that it indeed can raise the level of initial play, and can train you to have a "chess eye". Enjoy!

ChessMaster 7000
The Art of Attack in Chess

This book is one of a kind! My positional play is strong, yet even though I know my pieces are stronger than my opponents I often cannot find a way to take advantage of it. This book opened my eyes to all the attacking themes found in chess. I just played one of my best games ever 2 days ago, and without this book the spectacular mating attack would have never happened. If you lack attacking skills in the middle game, this is the best book out there. Not for beginners, but great for intermediate players.

Nunn's Chess Openings (Everyman Chess Series)

This is the "GrandMaster" of opening books. I am a Master and I teach chess for a living. When my students want to learn an opening, or need a one volume reference for learning new openings, this is the book I recommend to them. A "MUST" for the Postal player! There is more information and fewer mistakes in this book, than any opening compendium I have ever seen!

How to Reassess Your Chess : The Complete ChessMastery Course

Jeremy Silman is a chess teacher; and this book, along with his excellent 'The Amateur's Mind," cannot be bettered for learning about the game. OK, so he uses a lot of his own games SO WHAT? You would expect that an international master would be most familiar with his own experience; Silman also includes plenty of examples from the games of Fischer, Botvinnik, Karpov and Petrosian (the last figure perhaps the most unjustly underrated and misunderstood champion in the game's history). He also includes a list of recommended further reading, which I have found helpful
