    What are some of the best books on strategy? I know of books on tactics and endgame, but what about strategy? Any manuals that are a good reference?

    Check out the book "The Amateurs Mind" by Jeremy Silman.  That book is flat out amazing in my opinion.  I used to have a copy, and need to pick another one up.

    Pachman's Modern Chess Strategy.

  • #5

    I wanted to get pachmans book but i only found it in discriptive notation on amazon. yes i know it should be no problem for a chess player, but sometimes i miss a move or misread, i imagine it could be really confusing using descriptive notation.

    Improve Your Positional Chess by Carsten Hansen is good, though he throws around the word "obviously" too many times.
