    How to Reassess your Chess is much too advanced for you. I would recommend Chernev's Logical Chess: Move by Move: Every Move Explained.

    The bulk of your chess "study" time at your level should be tactics training. And be sure to play plenty of slow games (at least 30 minutes per side, preferably something like 45 45 [45 minutes each side, with 45 second increment]), which will help you improve far more than if you play mostly blitz.

    Dan Heisman has an excellent page of Recommended Chess Books organized by level.

    This is enough material to take you to 1700.

    The Recommended Chess Books won't take me to 1700?

    Yes, victorpu did (fgj,bdhjj), although I think it lost something in the translation. Laughing

    If how to reasses your chess is too advanced, you'll benefit a great deal from his other book "The amature's mind". It's good if you're kinda all over the place in your discipline and want to start right.

    Also I did an article on this kind of topic
