    Book DescriptionMastering Positional Chess is a serious, but entertaining chess instruction book. Daniel started writing it when he realized that his lack of positional understanding was causing him to lose many games.

    Despite his young age, Daniel's mature style and systematic method of working stand out. He gives crystal-clear, verbal explanations on the essence of positional chess, thus showing himself to be a born writer and instructor.

    This refreshingly original book contains six chapters on the important positional aspects of chess, with many attractive games and fragments from Daniel's own games, but also from games by top players like Kasparov, Karpov, Topalov and Petrosian.

    Naroditsky's course covers the following subjects:
    -- Prophyaxis
    -- Defense in worse positions
    -- Building and breaking fortresses
    -- Positional sacrifice
    -- Paralysis in the middlegame
    -- Maneuvering

    There are many exercises and summaries throughout the book.

    In a special preface Daniel's parents tell the story behind this book, which teaches chess skills every club player needs in order to win more games.

    • EBOOK - Prepare to Attack
      There's no escaping the fact: if you want to win chess games, you have to attack at some point. Many players are happy solving combinations in winning positions, when the hard work is already done, but the key to a successful attack undoubtedly comes much earlier. No-one can attack effectively if they haven't prepared properly, and yet planning in chess can be a difficult technique to master, even for experienced players.

      Test and Improve your Over-the-Board Decision Making
      Most chess puzzle books put you in an artificial situation: you are told a combination exists, what the theme is and what you are required to achieve. This one is different. In a real game, a player may sometimes need to find a combination. On the other hand he may have to reject a tactical idea and simply find a good positional move. His task is to find the right move, whatever it may be.
