IM JEREMY SILMAN, author of How to Reassess Your Chess

Every article is written so that even someone like me (just started studying chess last month) can easily comprehend the articles. It's amazing how much I've learned since receiving this magazine two weeks ago.

You are everything your audience wants to read. That is why you are so successful.
