Hello, I'm rated 1500 USCF and I'm looking for advice on chess books. I'm looking for endgames and middlegames, but no tactics seeing as there is tactics trainer here. What would you suggest?
Ever been to Coach Heisman's web site? (danheisman.com) Lots of book recommendations there. I'm too much of a patzer myself to tell you which of my many unread books would be best.
Thanks! There are tons of intermediate books there, I'm going to take a look when I have a bit of time.
for middle games, try jeremy silman's reassess your chess
my game as improved because ive gone back to my old books the winning chess series by yasser seirawan and reading move by move books try it good luck.
