Like its predecessor, the book is organized into two sections: a detailed discussion of how computers play chess, and a detailed analysis by Boris Baczynskyj of games played by chess programs.
The technical section is more extensive and invoved than that of the first volume, and this book has been selected as a university textbook. Its insights are deeper than those of the first volume, thus it is more oriented toward advanced players and programmers, than toward the average chess player.
