The third book on chess that came into my hands from Fair's Fair books Mount Royal Location was this rather slim but nevertheless bountiful volume by Michael Stean. Don't be fooled by the title, this book is not a beginner’s intro to some interesting ideas. For $5.00 Stean delivers wealth of information about positional play and importance of fundamentals without re-hashing the old principles over and over. There are many chess players that would benefit from having this volume on their shelf as they may discover important points about their favorite positions from the perspective of say Weak Pawns or Outposts.
