    Book Description

    If you have just picked up this book, the chances are that you are the proud owner of a piece of chess software. Whether this is the latest release of a sophisticated database package or a playing program that came free with a magazine, then this book will help you make the most of it.

    Even basic chess software packages now usually have numerous interesting features and working out how to use these effectively is no easy task. Many players simply use a playing program to practice against and a database program just for storing and replaying games. Yet there is much more that can be achieved with such packages and this book will show you how the experts do it.

    With this book you can:

    • learn powerful techniques for organizing and managing your chess data
    • discover proven, effective methods to study the middlegame and endgame
    • learn how to most effectively harness the power of a chess engine
    • efficiently analyze your own strengths and weaknesses

    We can not accept return or exchange requests for shopworn book sales. Because we are offering these current books at an incredible discount due to shopworn imperfections, which may include bent corners and edge smudges, all shopworn book sales are final.
