Hello everyone ! I would like to improve my game and i am asking for someone's suggestions about books i MUST read. And, what is the best way to progress "quickly" ? Thanks, Sycret.
Chess improvement takes patience, Sycret. The game itself takes patience. It takes quite awhile to get good at it.
You'd need several books to start with -- at least one on each of the following:
Paul Morphy a Modern Perspective by Valerie Beim
Capablanca, a Primer of Checkmate by Frisco Del Rosario
are two books that I enjoyed looking through last spring and fall. I believe they played a part in my progress.
