      My System
      Catalog Code: B0009QT

      Aron Nimzowitsch was one of the greatest chess players of the 1920s and 1930s, ranked just behind the famous World Champions Alekhine and Capablanca. His reputation as an author is higher still.

      My System is at the top of a very short list of chess classics. Nimzowitsch's ideas have had a profound influence on modern chess thinking. Most chess masters will at some point have studied Nimzowitsch's work, and not to have read My System is by many regarded as a shocking gap in a chess player's education.

      Playing the French
      Catalog Code: B0081QT

      The French Defence is one of the most solid and strategically rich responses to 1.e4. Many opening lines have been analysed to death by computer, but the French is relatively resistant to this growing trend, as the characteristic blocked pawn centre leads to situations where a player with superior understanding can overcome an opponent whose expertise lies in computer-assisted preparation.

      Rook vs. 2 Minor Pieces
      Catalog Code: B0023QT

      Many chess players shy away from positions with material imbalances, because they feel insecure in the face of their unclear nature. Traditional chess teaching does not spend much time on understanding such imbalances, but in this original book Esben Lund discusses one of the most common imbalances, where one player has a rook, and the other two minor pieces.

      The Inner Game of Chess
      How to Calculate and Win
      Catalog Code: B0107EU

      In The Inner Game of Chess, GM Andy Soltis shows that the key to good calculation is good visualization of the position in front of us and then after the moves we’re considering. Being aware of tactical motifs; knowing when to stop looking; and verifying your chosen move are essential, but they all depend on the basic requirement to see clearly what’s going on. The author discusses common obstacles to clear visualization and offers techniques to overcome them in your own play.

      The Secret Life of Bad Bishops
      Catalog Code: B0101QT

      The Bad Bishop is a notorious villain in chess, but often a perfectly respectable bishop is falsely accused. The Secret Life of Bad Bishops takes an in-depth look at the bishop – not just dealing with good and bad bishops but also more nuanced cases where a “double-edged bishop” could turn out to be a game-winning hero or a fatal liability. All phases of chess are covered, from opening to middlegame to endgame. The final two chapters test the reader’s newly enhanced understanding with carefully chosen exercises and instructive solutions.

      Catalog Code: B0049EU

      The late Aleksander Wojtkiewicz, known as "Wojo" to his fans and followers, was one of the most feared players of the White pieces in the U.S. tournament circuit. Using his dynamic, Catalan-based opening repertoire, the "Polish Magician" won hundreds of tournaments from the 1990's until his untimely death in 2006. Now, Wojtkiewicz experts IM Dean Ippolito and NM Jonathan Hilton have joined forces to produce the definitive "how-to" manual for learning Wojo's repertoire with White after 1.Nf3 d5.
