As the book progresses, we learn more elaborate and hilarious measures for gaining an advantage in the game, without actually resorting to practice or analysis of positions. We start with some simple suggestions on how to gain a pawn, or maybe a slight positional advantage. Then, tougher measures are required to pick up a minor piece or a rook. Finally, for those in a desperate situation and willing to make preparations ahead of time, the ultimate ploy can extract a sudden resignation from your opponent as he races from your house.
I don't want to give away any of these nuggets, so get the book for yourself, and enjoy!
