Format: Paperback
This is not a "How to" book, despite its title. The advice it presents are few and rather superficial, and mostly bunched into the last few pages.
This is more of a descriptive study and self-knowledge guide, with half of the book consisting of various tests and their solutions. Some of these tests are rather instructive, but IMHO they have little to do with the subject of training your chess thought. Of course, doing the excercises will improve your play, so this is not a useless book.
This is definitely not for the beginner. You will also need an interest in psychology and the associated jargon to enjoy this book.

Do I HAVE to give stars ??
A very demanding book, has more to do with how the brain work then chess...
The first pages are very interesting (thats why I bought it) but then it gets very hard. It expects you to look at positions and say what you think into a recorder and then analyse that and...
There formulas in there about how you should pick your variation wich would be great,.. if you had the memory of a computer. A friend of mine (elo 2150) came too same conclusion. "What the hell is that" he said ;)
Don't buy this one.

Format: Paperback
at first i thought it was awesome, but it has two problems:

1. waaaaaay to hard. cmon, no one sees the pages of analysis that the authors give as the answer and the positions are insanely, impractically difficult. it will just make you feel bad about yourself.

2. the analysis isnt all that good. check it with an engine and you'll find numerous perpetuals that arent at all, etc.

having said that, some of the problems are quite beautiful

Going through sudies will help your play, and this book has that. But there is a lot of dry, strange stuff in here that isn't so practical. I re-wrote this review after my initial enthusiasm for this book waned.
