2.0 out of 5 stars Great Book Poor Layout, 31 Jan. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a good book, done no justice at all by how poorly it is laid out. It is an awkward size, making it seem more like a university textbook than a regular book. The chapter breaks are basically a couple of line spaces in the middle of otherwise dense screeds of text, giving a reading experience similar to reading pages with no paragraph breaks.

Worst of all, in a book with quite a lot of footnotes, it is almost impossible to decipher where the main text ends and the footnote begins. Additionally, the footnotes are labelled with asterisks rather than numbers, and where there are a few footnotes on the same page, it is difficult to determine which footnote relates to which part of the main text.

Overall, this is a fascinating book with an impeccably reasoned line of argument. I would definitely recommend buying it, but just not this version, as the layout is truly awful.

3.0 out of 5 stars Play Winning Chess, 20 April 2007
Is a chess book which is aimed mainly at weaker chess players. It can be helpful for more advanced players too, but I found that a lot of the material in the book was merely reinforcing my own knowledge, and I am not a chess expert at all. This book would be excellent for players who have a weak grasp of the four basic principles of chess: Material, Space, Tempo and Pawn Structure, but if you have a sound knowledge of these principles then I suggest that a more advanced book is for you.
