What books are you reading and what do you think of them?
for chess, i'm reading Bobby Fischer teaches chess. It's realy helped my game, and if you read it, hopefully it'll help you.
I find chess books slow and cumbersome, compared to videos(here) and tactic sites imho.
At the moment, "Winning Chess Strategies" by Yasser Seirawan. Love it so far, I hope to go through the whole book a few more times after I'm done.
I'm reading Madame Bovary by Flaubert. Before that was a few short stories by Dostoevsky.
Back to Basics: Tactics by Dan Heisman
by Vukovic, V.
So far so good,
I just read the deadbeats by ward ruyslinck, it was pretty good
Among other things I'm in the middle of this right now:
Unfortunately it's pretty cumbersome though; the editors are none too readable, I'm afraid.
I need to send you the videos!
Aha, you seem to have me mistaken for Whob.
I'm reading four:
Alan Sugar - What you see is what you get
Complete Idiots Guide to Zen Living
Eats Shoots & Leaves
Bull Bryson - Mother Tongue
Wow, you weren't making that one up:
I must say I agree with them (I hate punctuation!).
I am reading Harry Potter. What a great series, it is!
Chess books only:
How to Reassess Your Chess - Good book, will probably be able to learn from this for quite a while to come by additional readings.
Silman's Endgame Book - Nice and instructional.
FCO - Should arrive Monday, so no comments yet.
Improve your Chess Tactics by Neistadt - Tough at times, but a nice tactics book with real game situations.
learn chess by john nunn (great book just the right kind of info I need)
chess fundamentals by capablanca (too old fashioned for my liking now that I have "learn chess" but I will still finish anyway)
Chess for Juniors is a good book too!
I've read art of attack its ok. It wasn't my favorite. Its tons of variations to go through it can get rather monotonous.
by Vukovic, V.
So far so good,
I don't read in this moment i frite m'y book! =)
