Top Customer Reviews
There are three questions that one should ask himself before taking a positional decision :
1.What is the weakness ? (chapter one)
2.What is the worst placed piece ? (chapter two)
3. What does my opponent want ? (chapter three)
The reader should then try to solve some exercices involving the three questions without a clue (chapter four) and the solutions are chapter five.
Great reading and training because the examples are well chosen,not too difficult (unlike most Aagaard's training books, generally aimed at a +2400 level)and the method is easy to remember and use.
This is not an instructionnal book for beginners, the reader must know the basics of strategy, pawn structure, so I would say ideally suited for1700-2400 players.
