2011 Guardian Chess Book of the Year!!

How to Reassess Your Chess
has long been considered a modern classic. Now, this fourth and final edition - COMPLETELY REWRITTEN AND FEATURING ALL NEW EXAMPLES - takes Silman's groundbreaking concept of imbalances to a whole new level.

Designed for players in the 1400 to 2100 rating range and for teachers looking for a ready-made chess curriculum, the author shares a mind-expanding journey that takes the reader through imbalance-basics, ensures that every detail of all the imbalances are mastered, and leaves the player/lover of chess with something he always wanted but never believed he could achieve: a master-level positional foundation.

A section on practical chess psychology (titled Psychological Meanderings) presents never-before-published ideas on psychological processes that hinder players of all levels, and gives easy-to-follow advice and techniques that will help anyone overcome these ubiquitous mental/emotional failings.

Hundreds of games brought to life by instruction-rich prose, and stories that offer humor while highlighting various lessons, vividly illustrate all the book's topics in a manner that's both personal and fun.

If the positional masterpieces of the chess legends have always been a mystery to you, if chess strategy has always been an unsolvable enigma, if you find yourself a positional pawn rather than a positional master, then How to Reassess Your Chess, 4th edition will prove to be a life-changing experience.

Jeremy Silman is an International Master and a world-class teacher, writer, and player who has won the American Open, the National Open, and the U.S. Open. Considered by many to be the game's preeminent instructive writer, he is the author of over thirty-seven books, including Silman's Complete Endgame Course, The Amateur's Mind, The Complete Book of Chess Strategy, and The Reassess Your Chess Workbook.

Daniel King, The Guardian:
"Everything he talks about is practical and relevant. He discusses common problems and common positions in detail, but the book is also personal and anecdotal in a way that brings examples and ideas vividly to life (..) Excellent value."

John Watson, IM and author of over 30 chess books:
"The Rolls Royce of instructive chess books - more chess players have improved by reading How to Reassess Your Chess than any other book."

Joel Benjamin, GM, three-time U.S. Chess Champion, and chess author:
"It seems crazy for Silman to do a complete "reassessment" of his groundbreaking work, but the all-new 4th edition is better than ever! This book is a must for all players serious about improving their
game."

Gary Lane, Chess moves Magazine:
"An excellent, practical guide for the player who wants to win."
