Descriptive notation?

Yes.  There are some great chess books extant, still very instructive, which are only available in Desciptive notation.  Ludek Pachman's "Modern Chess Strategy" is one of these.  (As is "Pawn Power In Chess" by Hans Kmoch).  These books are a good reason to become familiar with Descriptive notation!; while not as simple and efficient as the now mainstream Algebraic notation, it can nevertheless be learned with minimal effort....

I though that, at one time, the Kmoch book had been done in algebraic notation (1 e4 e5 2 Nf3 Nc6) (although, if I remember correctly, you did not approve of the result). Anyway, whatever the merits of becoming comfortable with descriptive notation (1 P-K4 P-K4 2 N-KB3 N-QB3), it seems to me to be appropriate to provide a warning to potential buyers of a descriptive notation book.

I address all of that in my blog article...

The first 9 months of the Core Course is nothing but strategy!  The final 4 months are on analysis, and then there are two 12-month courses after that.
