Steve Giddins is a very succesful chess writer, and his 50 Essential Chess Lessons was a huge bestseller. At The Week in Chess IM John Watson said this about it: "Giddins gives descriptions of key ideas of the games, tips for how to play them, and what to look out for. Again, the book's effectiveness is based upon its very clear and easy-to-digest presentation. I reviewed this book at length on one of my radio shows and can highly recommend it for average-strength players." We just received Giddins' new book: 50 Ways to Win at Chess, and it looks like another winner: 50 very well explained games that illustrate important winning methods. His topics include:

  • attacking weak colour complexes


  • choosing the right exchanges


  • two weaknesses
  • devastating opening preparation
  • psychology


  • handling must-win situations
  • etc.


In short: no-nonsense advice on topics of genuine practical importance.
