I was hoping this book would give me that info and it already has. I would normally not write a review for a book I have not been through but then I normally don't get this much information or inspiration on a first perusal.
Many books and chess improvement literature tell you to study classic chess games. Some even give you slight hints on possible methods for doing so. I have yet to see any methods shown for studying your own games...until this book.
If I have this much to go on after one hour with the book, imagine how much benefit I will get from studying the book! More on that later!
Most of the articles are very good, however the exercises are way to easy to be useful (if you read the articles). My disappointment was mainly that this book is a collection of seemingly random and unconnected articles/lectures, few of them had anything to do with actual "chess training." The ones that did were very creative and different than what most Western players are familiar/comfortable with...
I suppose if you are at that the level where one idea will make that much of a difference you might get something out of this book... however, if you need a system of thought or some teaching on a process then look elsewhere.
