I only gave it 4 stars because I thought the writing style wasn't very good. The author went out of his way to make the reading as difficult as possible. Excessive use of big words and weird phrasing make it a slow read. I think this book would benefit from having a few editors clean it up and then re-release it as a second edition.
I would not recommend this to younger readers just because of how slow and difficult the reading is.
Its focus on the pawn structure in the game of chess, or more generally, the creative and asymetric aspects that often determine the outcome of war against apparent odds, makes it a must read.
It is a 'painful' and demanding read nevertheless, that forces to reader to venture out of his comfort zone to adapt to the analysis and lingo of the author. kt
So: This book is good. It provides the concepts of Pawn Play. It is easy to understand without too many variations to dig through. The only negative is that he first creats his own vocabulary for you to follow. At first it is daunting to learn so many new terms, but there is a method to his madness. once you understand the language he is using the concepts and ideas become very clear and more importantly...useful!
