Renowned chess teacher and grandmaster Artur Yusupov continues his complete course of chess improvement. Volume 1, The Fundamentals, showed club chess players the basic ideas they should know.

Now Volume 2, Beyond the Basics, sets off on the road to mastery.

Yusupov guides the reader towards a higher level of chess understanding using carefully selected positions and advice. This new understanding is then tested by a series of exercises.

A substantial and methodical course in which study material is being introduced of progressing difficulty.

If you never had a chess coach, then here is your chance to experience the way Soviet coaches used to drill their pupils - without feeling their breath in your neck. Extremely good practical study and exercise material.

Artur Yusupov, from Germany, was ranked No. 3 the world from 1986 to 1992, just behind the legendary Karpov and Kasparov. In recent years he has mainly worked as a chess trainer with players ranging from current World Champion Vishy Anand and many other top grandmasters, to talented juniors and local amateurs in Germany.

IM John Donaldson, JeremySilman.com:
"Very helpful for almost all players below 2200 who learned how to play chess outside the Soviet Union. With very few exceptions such players have fundamental gaps in their knowledge."
