I found a few errors in this book. I also found one instance of the same line being analyzed twice with a different conclusion in each case! (Transposition.)
But for the most part this is an incredible chess book, crafted with great loving care by the authors. While it is probably over the head of the average chess player, the earnest student of the game will find much pure Gold here to mine!! Another warning: if you are the lazy type of chess player, you probably won't get much out of this book. Buy it ONLY if you are looking for a real challenge!!!(Understand: I am a Master, and many times the variations left me just scratching my head!!) This is the one chess book that, "Is looking for a few Good..." (To borrow a phrase.)
The people who believe meet Shirov, knows that he is a great tactical player, secrifices materia for dinamic game, always to pursuit a dramatic ending, and are games accourding this style, but Also is a graet ending player.
In this book, Shirov share, personal tips, that helps to improved chess result in tournaments, also gave its own opening lab, in this case he approach Botvinik opening.
The games were selected from 1979 to 1996, its showed the flesh style of Shirov, with a great tactical instint and his sacrifices, blaze the board, he always pursuit the path to performed a artistic manuoevre.
Shirov's approach are nice, he explained with detailed, easy to understand.
For any person who is coaching a child(parents, coach)this book help for the goal and is a nice gift, better if your child loves tactic.
For beginer player, this book contains top player games, but Shirov's approach is very easy, so don be afraid that you could not taste this book.
For Intermediate player, Shirov, gave nice tips about self preparation, and lab opening, you could find interesting. Too bad that this book has not pic's.
I hope my review could help you
