Description / The Complete Book of Chess Strategy

THE COMPLETE BOOK OF CHESS STRATEGY is an amateur's dream come true! Due to the overwhelming amount of strategic and tactical ideas in chess, students of the game buy dozens of chess books but still find it impossible to isolate the key points. Seeing the problems his students faced, Mr. Silman has created the first comprehensive strategic guide in dictionary form.

Now all aspects of chess strategy, tactics, basic opening and endgame ideas, and even psychology are painlessly accessible to players of all degrees of strength. Each concept is listed alphabetically, accompanied by a clear, easy-to-absorb explanation and an example.

Studying has never been easier! Take this book to work, on vacation or, if you're a serious competitive player, to all your tournaments.

The world's best players make regular use of this information. With everything presented in simple, easy-tv-understand language, Grandmaster techniques can finally become your techniques too.
