    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.

    • Play the Grunfeld
      Detailed Coverage of this Kasparov Favourite
      The Grunfeld is an exciting and dynamic answer to 1. d4, and has become very popular at all levels of chess. A major reason for this is that it has been a long-time favorite of the World's strongest-ever chess player, Garry Kasparov, who used it many times in his numerous World Championship battles. The Grunfeld very much relies on the principles of the hyper-modern school of chess: Black allows White to erect an impressive-looking center on the assumption that in the long run it could prove to be more of a liability than an asset.

    • Formation Attacks
      As a Chess Master who has spent many years playing aggressive and attacking chess, I was quite dismayed during a recent visit to my local bookstore. I was in search of a book that covered an array of attacks against many Pawn formations in an organized fashion. Needless to say, my search came up empty. The books on attacking fell short in many ways. Many of the books were simply a small collection of attack games with no instruction about the art of attacking or about the skills required to become a great attacker.
