Book Description

How to Reassess Your Chess has long been considered a modern classic. Now, this fourth edition - completely rewritten and featuring all new examples - takes Silmans groundbreaking concept of imbalances to a whole new level. Designed for players in the 1400 to 2100 rating range and for teachers looking for a ready-made chess curriculum, the author shares a mind-expanding journey that takes the reader through imbalance-basics, ensures that every detail of all the imbalances are mastered, and leaves the player/lover of chess with something he always wanted but never believed he could achieve: a master-level positional foundation.

A section on practical chess psychology (titled Psychological Meanderings) presents never-before-publishing ideas on psychological processes that hinder players of all levels, and gives easy-to-follow advice and techniques that will help anyone overcome these ubiquitous mental/emotional failings.

Hundreds of games brought to life by instruction-rich prose, and stories that offer humor while highlighting various lessons, vividly illustrate all the books topics in a manner that is both personal and fun.

If the positional masterpieces of the chess legends have always been a mystery to you, if chess strategy has always been an unsolvable enigma, if you find yourself a positional pawn rather than a positional master, then How to Reassess Your Chess, 4th Edition will prove to be a life-changing experience.
