    "Chess Opening Rep for black explained" is not the worse book those authors have produced, the equilvalent for white is really terrible, but there are better books covering similar ground. For example Eingorn's "A solid rep for black".

    - Silman's new endgame book.

    - Silman's Reassess your chess.

    - Pawn Power - Kmoch

    - Chess for Tigers - Simon Webb

    - Amateur's Mind - Silman

    - Simple Chess - Michael Stean

    - Complete Chess Strategy (Vols 1,2,3, not the condensed one!) - Pachman

    - Mammoth book of World's Greatest Games

    - Build up your chess Series - Arthur Yusupov
