    Book Description

    This is a book for chess players who love to play for checkmate from the very first move. It is for players who seek not merely a victory but the thrill of seeing the enemy king lie down in humiliating defeat. It is for the kind of player who reacts to the checkmate with a sly grin or by throwing his arms in the air and shouting "Who's da man?" (though this is considered very poor behavior and is not likely to earn you return match against the same opponent.) This book advocates an uncompromising opening system where White will be assured of a significant initiative for a considerable length of time, although he must part with a pawn in order to get it. Here you will find no encyclopedic treatment of variations or detailed repertoire notes. Instead, you'll find numerous brilliant sacrifices in the early stages of the game, many by amateur players facing superior opposition! Most of the games are presented all the way up to the checkmate move because this book is also intended as a manual of how to create a checkmate using a variety of opening and middlegame strategies.

    This book is intended for amateur players who are trying to improve their attacking skills.

    • First Book of Chess
      This book holds the distinction and is famous for being the first chess book Bobby Fischer ever read. As Bobby himself tells the story, when he was 6 years old, one day his sister Joan brought home a plastic chess set she had bought in the market and they learned how to play by reading the instructions on the box. Later, when Bobby had developed an interest in the game, Joan brought home a book appropriately entitled "First Book of Chess". It was then a new book, just out.

    • An Unbeatable White Repertoire after 1. e4 e5 2. Nf3
      "In this book, we shall provide the student with an unbeatable system for the white pieces after 1.e4 e5 2.Nf3. We teach you how to play against the Hungarian Defense, the Philidor Defense, the Latvian Gambit, and the Petroff Defenses. This gets us to the main lines, the Three Knights and Four Knights Game with the Belgrade Gambit included(the 1st time GM Evans ever recommended a gambit!). These 'hold the draw in hand and go for the win' openings have been researched like never before. There is more dynamic play, for those that know them, than ever realized. Here is something to build on if later in your career you want to head for the Giuoco Piano or Ruy Lopez." - Ken Smith.
