    Book Previews and Reviews
    In this section we present a sneak preview from The Modern French by Dejan Antic and Branimir Maksimovic. Our reviewer Glenn Flear notices a growing influence of subtitles in books like Ivan Sokolov's The Strategic Nimzo-Indian, Larry Kaufman's The Kaufman Repertoire for Black & White, Alexander Delchev's The Modern Reti and Ruslan Scherbakov's the triangle system. Of course the insides of these books are even more important, and Flear is an expert in pointing out the highlights!

      Shock Your Opponents with the Sokolsky
      Do you wish to surprise your opponents on the first move? Do you enjoy playing creatively from the beginning of the game? Look no further than 1 b4! With this aggressive pawn lunge White takes the game into relatively unknown territory and forces Black players onto their own devices. Those facing 1 b4 are not allowed to fall into the comfort zone of established theory; instead they have to think for themselves from very early on.

    • SHOPWORN - Who Dares Win?
      Attacking the Kings on Opposite Sides
      Both players are gunning for each other's kings. Whose attack will break through first? This is a typical scenario in chess games. In such tense battles where one slip can be fatal, often it's a case of 'who dares wins'. But it's not enough to throw your pieces up the board and hope for the best. To succeed you need to acquire sophisticated attacking and defensive skills. The good news is that they can easily be learned, remembered and put into practice.

    • Bobby Fischer for Beginners
      The Most Famous Chess Player Explained
      Bobby Fischer's lone fight against the Soviet chess powerhouse made him a global hero, also for people who did not play chess at all. The Russians trembled before him, the Americans and the rest of the world cheered him on. Fischer's chess prowess and his will to win were unparalleled. But so were his eccentric behaviour and his paranoia. After he won the world title, Bobby Fischer vanished and the former prodigy became a mystery. The memories of his successwere clouded by his anti-American and anti-Semite rants.

    • Aron Nimzowitsch - 1928-1935
      Annotated Games & Essays
      Every chess player who is serious about improving his game, should study the lessons of Aron Nimzowitsch (1886-1935). 'My System' (published in 1925) and 'Chess Praxis' (1928) had tremendous impact and made Nimzowitsch one of the most influential chess thinkers of the 20th century. His books continue to be printed, sold and read to this day. Reinhardt’s collection starts where Nimzowitsch’s second volume Chess Praxis ends. It offers a unique view of the chess world of the late 1920s and 1930s, its top tournaments and the state of theory.
