Being all text, you can take it with you wherever you go and read it (without a board). You can read it in your recliner, on a train, at the beach, in a restaurant, in the bathtub... almost anywhere (although probably not in the shower or while driving).

    You might be wondering if, without variations and examples, it can be easily comprehended. Well, aren't visualization and the process of doing things in your head at the very core of playing chess (not to mention the learning process itself)? Actually, the information is more likely to be retained by conceptualizing it. Take a look at the Introduction and Contents to get an idea just how comprehensive the book is. Is this book for all chess players? Actually, it should be very beneficial for almost all chess players from beginner up to about the master level.

    This book is for serious students of the game. It is also ideal for chess teachers. It is a textbook designed for the purpose of dispensing chess knowledge.

    • 365 Selected Endgames
      One for Each Day of the Year
      This book is written in both German and English. Some knowledge of both Classic notation and Algebraic (mainly the latter) is needed to follow all the notes. The book is mainly a series of fairly difficult endgame studies. I went through the book and solved each problem in the manner that the authors suggested in their preface. It helped me win many Chess tournament games that would have otherwise been draws and also draw many games that should have been lost.

    • Beating the Caro-Kann
      New opening ideas are created frequently, but few have had the meteoric career of Nigel Short's system against the Caro-Kann defense. Virtually unknown before 1988, it has become a regular customer in super tournaments since the 1990's. And yet it is so simple to handle that a Class B player can master most of the strategies in an afternoon. The British GM's system consists of playing the Advance variation of the Caro-Kann with a relatively modest form of development- modest yet it can pack quite a wallop. What short discovered was not just a new move, but a new concept. Despite the presence of the annoying bishop on the excellent b1-h7 diagonal, Black had not equalized, he announced. Short demonstrated that the bishop could, in fact, become a liability that would be attacked in the general expansion of white's pawns on the kingside. 1.e4 c6 2.d4 d5 3.e5 Bf5(as well as 3..c5 and 3..Na6)-new strategy against each one.

      From a theoretical backwater to a fully blown main line opening, the rise of the Scandinavian Defence (1. e4 d5) has been nothing short of meteoric. Over the past fifteen years the Scandinavian has become more and more popular both at club and Grandmaster level. It even managed to obtain an ultimate seal of approval when Vishy Anand employed it in his World Championship match with Garry Kasparov!
