If ,like me, your a low rated club player 1100+ whose chess is improving fast(or not as the case may be) and looking for that chess book among thousands that will set you of on the right path then this edition of MY SYSTEM is FABULOUS. IT's concept's are clear and easy to understand even if some of chess strategy has evolved over the years many of the basic ideas are still the same. Stronger players in my club always told me to have a plan when playing chess because sooner or later you come to a place when you're not going to know the book reply and tactics will not solve the problem either. MY SYSTEM will put you on the right track to developing good sound POSITIONAL play. Tactical play is great but on its own will not improve your chess. My thinking has changed dramatically because of this book and my grade is rising accordingly. I would also recommend that you follow up this book with SECRETS of MODERN CHESS STRATEGY by John Watson and UNDERSTANDING CHESS MOVE by MOVE by John Nunn. Save time and improve now and get on the right track to winning.
