IM Silman: The Amateur's Mind

    These views are my own and in no way attributed to IM Jeremy Silman.

    Been working through this masterpiece for the last month and I can truly say it has transformed the way I think at the board.  Last weekend, I had my best ever OTB tournament result taking second place out of thirty-nine players and I attribute this solely to my study of this book.

    If you are graded anywhere from 1000 to 2000, give it a go.  Unless you live in my country and play tournaments, in which case, it's not for you.  :)

    That was a great book.

    Silman has a knack for taking complex ideas, and explaining them in everday english.
