    This is 534-page one-of-a-kind chess book belongs in every serious chess player's library. It contains all of the useful, practical, information from over 400 chess books (plus many other sources). It is jam-packed with principles, tips, techniques, tricks, rules-of-thumb, general advice, and chess pearls of wisdom from the Masters.

    By eliminating the diagrams, games, variations and excessive examples, the book is about 40,000 pages shorter, 8 feet thinner, 188 pounds lighter than it would be... and it saves you about $8,000! If you want examples, you can get them from many other books and games. However, if you want a single book that covers nearly all of the essential concepts in chess; this is definitely the book for you. 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.

    • My 60 Memorable Games
      Descriptive Edition
      This is an exact reproduction of the original 1969 classic work, My 60 Memorable Games by Bobby Fischer. Unfortunately, there have been many efforts by other authors and contributors to "improve" on Fischer's work by converting the text into algebraic notation and then correcting what they thought were mistakes in analysis. It turned out that what they thought were mistakes by Fischer were mistakes by themselves. Fischer's analysis was correct. Their's was wrong. As a result, Fischer famously went on the radio to denounce those who claimed to have "improved" on his work.
