An ideal book for a player of 1500 ELO

tonyhuxley

Which chess book would benefit a guy with 1500 ELO the most?

Thanks!

I recently purchased "Modern Chess Strategy" by Ludek Pachman, but the descriptive notation makes the content a bit confusing. A book that uses the algebraic notation would be better.

wow, that's an old book, maybe try Seirawan's Winning Chess Strategies: http://www.amazon.com/Winning-Chess-Strategies-revised-Everyman/dp/1857443853/ref=sr_1_1?s=books&ie=UTF8&qid=1338791117&sr=1-1

chess strategy for club players by gooten

Seirawans books are good too but I like gooten better

The Yusupov "Build Your Chess" and "Boost Your Chess" series.

How to Reassess Your Chess - It made my rating go from 1770 to 1856 in one week, and it's definitely worth every penny. Buy the new edition, as it has excellent examples.

How to Reassess Your Chess, Chess Strategy for Club Players, Simple Chess, Secrets of Endgame Chess Strategy and How To Play Chess Endgame by Muller, are all appropritae for your level, they are all good books.

Either Yusupov's elementary course, or "Simple Chess" by Michael Stean. Old stuff, but still extremely useful.

I'm working through Stean's book now. Very good and clear writing.
