Silman is a teaching genius. Static Vs Dynamics This is a very nice chapter. It isn’t exhaustive by any means, but it does cover the basics. I think the 3rd edition is a bit more accessible, and more broadly based.

I was dissappointed with this one. I’d say Amateur’s Mind.

This is a very big advantage, specially in closed positions, where you can play cat and mouse, and “do in 20 what you can do in 2”. A Wild Game That Worked!


Silman recommends HTRYC for those and above, and indeed those in the range can get something out of it, but there is the danger that players in this range will place too high a priority on Jeremy’s strong message and put strategical concerns above safety issues.

I enjoyed reading every page of it. It is seriously one of the best chesx out there for – players. Weekly digest for meremy.

Excellent bookexcellent modern ideas Most of these parts are further subdivided into chapters. He really does cover all the bases.

To be fair, I did check this out from the library at the same time as “My System” so it may have suffered from comparison, but for that reason I would suggest that anyone considering this book should simply get that volume, it will turn out to be a much better investment.


Dispatched from the UK in 2 business days When will my order arrive?

The rest of this book is dedicated to the Silman thinking technique. I have never read a better chess book in my life, and I doubt that I ever will. Personally, I suck at visualization of the board, but I digress. What makes this book valuable for me as a teacher is its main section of problems mostly positions and their solutions.
