I was curious as there are a lot of books for amature player specifically I wanted to know what are some books that are only aimed for experts or NM or any master title below IM or GM.
To answer your question I would say Class B (1600-1799) although some books the author actually tells who the book is aimed for but I've never read a book that didnt say at least high Class C (1500-1599). Hope this helps.
The only book I have ever actually seen a GM carrying around is : Domination In 2,545 Endgame Studies by Ghenrikh M. Kasparyan
Ofcourse I bought the book asap but am STILL not a GM.....
Also... a GM recently told me he had purchased The Flexible French by GM Moskalenko and he praised the book a lot.
I personaly think any book that goes and talks about indepth analysis on a specific opening variation is good for a master if he plays that variation and my older brother thinks so to.
As for my question Jeremy Silmans endgame course is the only book I found that talks about a course that goes all the way to FM level (2300-2399) so this seem like the only book a that really for a NM.
Also in the back of "How to beat your dad at chess" the tactics in the back are aimed at for beginner to NM level and USCF Chess Life magazine has a colum where you have to match the moves of other master and thats generally aimed for players Class C to SM (2400-2499)
