Chess is developing faster now than ever before in history, and the appearance of strong chess computers has changed the way players think. In the past many positions would have been rejected on principle as impossible to defend, and even the best players would shy away from capturing material if it meant that they would have to face a difficult defence. This attitude has changed, and today’s top players are not afraid of walking a very fine line in defence.
This book gives practical advice on various methods of defence, offering readers the chance to test and train with 200 challenging examples. While not for the faint-hearted, this book will help the reader greatly improve in this vital part of the game.  

Jacob Aagaard, one of the three founders of the publishing company Quality Chess, has a strong reputation as a chess author and he certainly lives up to it with this book. This is a book about defence and about training. Aagaard dedicates the first two chapters to resp."The Defensive Thinking Frame" and "Defensive methods" before presenting the reader with 200 training positions on three different levels. All 200 positions are then extensively explained both in words and in variations.
