Great intro to chess strategy,
By A Customer
This review is from: Simple Chess (Paperback)
Although written using descriptive notation I strongly recommend this book to any chess player beginning to switch from tactical play to understanding strategy. The points are made directly and clearly using excellent example games. After reading and playing through this book you should have a better understanding of what is being fought for in master games. Not a lot of pages but they are full of dynamite information. Reading his comments on the Ruy Lopez had the same effect as the cartoon lightbulb - I SEE!

Behold! (I'm writing this in July 2013). There's a new version in algebraic notation (Dover 2002) which has been reissued on New In Chess. I would prefer that version.
£6.50, cheaper too! Thos e who want an intro to stategy, it's a recommended reading.
