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.
yes i agree with both
You are NOT the only one who benefited from it
ive read the book twice. and i am looking at the chess board and understanding the game more all the time.
yeah . you can't go wrong with IM Sliman books
