This book presents more advanced chess principles, and it's a little hefty for a beginner (or a 7 year old, as I was the first time I borrowed my Dad's chess books), but for a more experienced player looking to improve their game, it's a pretty good resource.
I really don’t like writing bad reviews on anything but this translation into English is bad I don’t think the translator should have attempted this. I did not get past the preface before coming across major translation issues. This book has potential but needs a team of professional translators to truly convey the intended message.
Not satisfied. One star
I am not a beginner but not such a good player. I found it too difficult to follow your diagrams of the chess moves and consequently closed the book.
This book was so bad I tried to rate it a zero. This author spends 200 pages blebbering along like nuts. I can’t even see the board so what’s the point of even reading this book if your IQ is not over 140. The author tells you everything in the beginning of the book and when you get to where there is strategy you have to go back 200 pages every single time. I advise you NOT to read this book and pass(not gas but uh you know) and go on to a book that actually teaches you straight forward strategy .when I looked at this cover I thought I was going to become better not Albert Einstein better but like a little above average anywho all in all it is a total waste of time
