Written on the basis that visualization improves knowledge and skill.
Interesting. Why only four stars? Because can have appeal only for a sub-set of the amateur players.
However, at this price it is worth buying, in order to see if you like it.
I concluded long ago visualization is the core skill for playing chess. To a large extent brain wiring; either you have it or you don't. But this book will definitely help you get the maximum available to you. Without visualization there is no calculation. Without calculation there is no pattern recognition. Without pattern recognition there is no tactics. We all know 'chess is 99% tactics' (Teichmann).
Personally, I think the calculation and pattern recognition puzzle books are nearly worthless.There are dozens of them - but "Where are the grandmasters?
I recommend this book highly to players below 2200 and especially to those below 2000.
The only other true book on chess visualization is Buckley's Practical Chess Analysis; also a worthy tome.
