    Book Description

    For the last ten years, grandmaster Lev Alburt has been writing a very special montly column for the U.S. Chess Federation's magazine, Chess Life. Non-titles readers are asked to contribute their most instructive games, with generous annotations. From dozens of entries each month, Lev chooses for his column one he considers to be of greatest value for CL's readers, adding his own comments and advice.

    For this book, Lev has selected 40 of his best columns, arranged them by themes, cut some material — and added much more, all to make A Fresh Look at Chess both truly instructional and fun to read.

    Most chess books have been written by grandmasters of help amateurs, both beginners and seasoned players, to understand chess and to play it better — using games by other grandmasters. A Fresh Look at Chess offers a new, complementary, and very effective, approach.
