Chess Book Inquiry

    More mere opinion masquerading as fact.  I did provide reason but you are only interested in your own propaganda.  Maybe someone will believe it, I certainly don't.  In fact lets put it to the test.  Considered the best teacher on youtube by whom? and on what basis? Did you take a poll? conduct a study? Gather data? Where did you get this information from? Did you simply make it up and try to fob it off on other people as bona fide?  Perhaps reality can make no inroads and you must at every turn fabricate a narrative?

       A higher rated player won't necessarily be a good teacher , but how can a player that doesn't understand chess be a teacher?

        Who teaches surgeons?One that never practiced medicine or accomplished and experienced surgeons?Obviously the second but why?The answer is again obvious.The experienced surgeon has the theoretical knowledge and fully understands the practical difficulties!No one denies that.Also no one can deny that not all experienced doctors can be good teachers.

        So which are the components of the good teacher?

    1)High practical experience in terms of quality and quantity 

    2)High theoretical education and

    3)The ability to transfer this knowledge effectively

     

         Just like a surgeon , the one that decides to teach chess must fully understand the practical difficulties.If he doesn't , then he can't teach.An A-class or a B-class player  might actually do more harm than good despite his good intentions.For the simple reason that he might not even fully understand what is right and what is wrong.And yes , I have met low rated players that can teach but 99.99% can't.

        A huge variable is the target group.Someone rated around 1200 and interested in on-line bullet might find more helpful a "bad" teacher with a good bullet rating and lots of experience in it.He might not even interested in a good teacher that will tell him to study fundamental endgames(booooring!).Afterall the vast majority of on line amateurs seeking an easy way to gain a couple hundreds on line points is what made Dan Heisman an awarded teacher.
