I know it's an oldie but is it a goodie for a lower ranked player like myself? Any and all comments welcome, even if another book is recommended since I'm turning into a "real chess player" by getting too many books to read at once :)
Well, I think the official chesskid curricilum is better
Just make sure you don't pay for it. It can be found for free on project Gutenburg, although the diagrams are next to worthless (text diagrams). Here's the link. http://www.gutenberg.org/catalog/world/readfile?fk_files=1460104
If you're just wanting to read a "vintage" book of that type, I think The Game of Chess by Tarrasch is better.
The 21st century version of the book is a 100% improvement over the old book which had no changes since 1932 they corrected all the mistakes, added more diagrams and photo's freshened it up.
You're in good hands with either Lasker's or Tarrasch's book.
Thanks for all the input, I think I'll wait until I get a little bit stronger for the updated Lasker book
Lasker has two excellent books. The first was a Common Sense in Chess and the other the Lasker Manual. Both are excellent reads.
