    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.

    • New Ideas in the Sveshnikov Sicilian
      The Sicilian Defence features many dramatic variations, but for sheer violence, few can equal the Sveshnikov. Black aims for maximum piece activity at the cost of a shattered pawn structure. Black's aim is to seize the initiative, regardless of the cost. If he is successful, then the pawns will look after themselves. On the other hand, white is looking to use black's weaknesses as spring-boards for a ferocious attack of his own.
