The Fundamentals level is the easiest one, Beyond the Basics is more challenging, and Mastery is quite difficult, even for stronger players.The various topics Tactics, Strategy, Positional Play, Endgames, Calculating Variations, and Openings are spread evenly across the nine volumes, giving readers the chance to improve every area as they work through the books.This book is the first volume at the Fundamentals level.

on attendait un ouvrage de ce niveau-là depuis fort longtemps.
Clair, précis, issu d'un long travail d'entraineur d'Arthur Yusupov (avec Mark dvoretsky, et bien d'autres institution comme celle d'Apeldoorn et d'internet, d'où il nous avait sortit les "chess lessons")
ce livre 1 nous amène les bases indispensables a tout joueur, et ce dans tous les domaines (ouvertures, milieu de jeu, finales, stratégie, tactique...)
cet ouvrage est un de ceux que tous se devraient de posséder, un indispensable!!
ah au fait, Merci Mr Yusupov !!!!

HASH(0x8fb51228) étoiles sur 5 Nice workbook 20 août 2008
Par Goosemeyer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Achat vérifié
I really like this book. It is not so much an instructional book as a graded workbook. I would say it is half way between an instructional work and a test book. You are introduced to some concept, shown some examples, and then offered exercises to do (with a rudimentary scoring system). No effort is really made to teach you though - it's as if this were designed as material for coaches which I believe it is.

Jeremy Silman was disappointed that it was so dry (he's right) but this doesn't bother me at all. There are numerous books providing good instructive material on this or that topic but precious few that offer any kind of substantial course or progressive introduction of material. I guess this is what you pay a trainer for. This first volume looks like it could be the start of one and that would be a good thing. Actually Silman's own endgame book is very deliberately written to offer a progression of material and it is great (less dry too, for those who care).

The material is not difficult, but not beginner stuff (the Introduction suggests under 1500 ELO). The exercises at the end vary in difficulty so some are trivial and others require more effort. Also, the 24 chapters are brief and self-contained so you can stop and start frequently without losing focus.

My purpose in buying this book was to discover fundamental weaknesses that I had skipped over so I could fill in the blanks (the Introduction states that it will help "close any possible gaps in [the reader's] chess knowledge"). It is proving useful for exactly that purpose and it's finding plenty. You can be going along fine, your confidence growing, and then wham - a total blind spot. For me, the first was centralization where I was beyond bad - totally hopeless. It's exactly this kind of discontinuity in your knowledge that this book will discover for you, and fixing your weakest links just has to improve your results.

In essence I am paying for the author's proven skill in selection of material and recognizing what is relevant for a particular playing level. This is money well spent. Five stars if it had just a little more instructive prose.

HASH(0x8fb51450) étoiles sur 5 WHAT THE OTHER REVIEWS HAVE NOT, SO FAR, SAID 16 décembre 2010
Par yvonne - Publié sur Amazon.com
Achat vérifié
BUILD UP YOUR CHESS THE FUNDAMENTALS is one volume of a NINE volume comprehensive "training program" or "chess course" which aims to bring you from the level of the club player to the level of the master in three levels and to identify the knowledge needed for each level revealing any gaps you may have in the process. It is basically a guide for self-assessment that allows you to know where you are in your chess knowledge and is best used supplementing other more detailed instructional sources. This training program is based on the original online lessons from the CHESS TIGERS UNIVERSITY.

For me, this is an EXTREMELY valuable thing to know: what knowledge exactly should I have for the level I am aiming for and what is missing in my knowledge base that is essential for this level. I feel very lucky to have discovered this.

The other reviews seem to assume three volumes at most; it has expanded and is now nine volumes which are divided into three series.

The three series are BUILD UP YOUR CHESS (which was the first of the three series), BOOST YOUR CHESS and CHESS EVOLUTION and each of these has its own Volume 1 THE FUNDAMENTALS (the level of the club player - orange cover in all 3 series), Volume 2 BEYOND THE BASICS (a transitional level - blue cover in all 3 series) and Volume 3 MASTERY (the level of the master - green cover in all 3 series). That's right, the levels are color-coded.

When the BUILD UP YOUR CHESS series came out in 2008, it was greeted with very high regard: in 2009, Artur Jussupow (or Yusupov, as is easier for most of us to pronounce) was announced the winner of the "Boleslavsky Medal" for best chess book of 2008 by FIDE. The medal, named for Ukrainian Grandmaster Isaac Boleslavsky, is FIDE's way of recognizing this series as a chess-related "best book with remarkable, instructional values." It is possible that the resultant close scrutiny led to its expansion into a second and third series ... that is my guess but I have not yet come across the answer to the question "What did Yusupov know and when??".

Not all nine volumes have already been published as of December, 2010.

What this book is not?? This book is not primarily explanatory text and is not a primer; it does not present sufficient detail to be an introduction to, or the only source for, the information included and is not intended to be used in this way. If you are reading this review because you are a beginner looking for a comprehensive primer, try any of the following: there are large books like THE COMPLETE IDIOT'S GUIDE TO CHESS by Patrick Wolff or ALPHA TEACH YOURSELF CHESS by Zsuzsa Polgar et al or COMPREHENSIVE CHESS COURSE VOLUMES 1 & 2 by Roman Pelts and Lev Alburt and smaller books like PORTABLE CHESS COACH by Judee Shipman or CONCISE CHESS by John Emms; each has some wonderful aspect and so it depends on what you are looking for; read their reviews and judge for yourself; also, do not overlook amazon's "Listmania" as a great source of information.

What this book is?? This book is an OUTLINE of what you should know as a club player. Its primary purpose seems to be to serve as an excellent guide for self-assessment. It has 24 chapters structured as follows: each chapter starts with a VERY BRIEFLY defined concept such as "Centralizing the pieces" followed by several (mostly short) game excerpts each with diagram which demonstrates the concept and is color coded so you can see at a glance the color of the player of the next move, exercises to test the reader with solutions at the end of each chapter and a suggested method of scoring. It is one of the three volumes each subtitled the same: Volume 1 THE FUNDAMENTALS. Together, these three volumes represent the first level and starting point, the knowledge base that every club player should begin with before going to the next level of this comprehensive chess course which is the three Volumes 2 BEYOND THE BASICS.

This was the part about which, initially, I was unclear: there are really only three levels; this first level consists of Volume 1 of EACH of the three series; all Volumes 1 THE FUNDAMENTALS represent this same first level. This can be confusing as Yusupov seems to have written them by series not by level but they are meant to be read by level so that the order in which they are intended to be read is to begin with all the Volumes 1, then all the Volumes 2 and end with all the Volumes 3. I have confirmed this order with the publisher.

I want to start with just one level, THE FUNDAMENTALS (all orange covers). I have purchased Volume 1 THE FUNDAMENTALS of both the BUILD UP YOUR CHESS series and the BOOST YOUR CHESS series but Volume 1 THE FUNDAMENTALS is not yet available for the CHESS EVOLUTION series and, as of Sept. 12, 2011, is not expected to come out until later in 2011; nine is expected to be the final total number for this course/program ... but who knows.

It took me a while to figure this all out as it is spelled out some places but not everywhere and I had to do some homework and did not immediately notice that the levels are color-coded. Perhaps, the total concept evolved as the author went along. In any case, being clear on this may help your purchase decisions if, like me, you did not immediately understand.

By the way, those interested in this book might, also, like CHESS EXAM AND TRAINING GUIDE by Igor Khmelnitsky which targets all levels from beginner to master; it is, also, highly regarded having won, for best book of 2005, the Cramer Award given by CJA (Chess Journalists of America).

HASH(0x8fb516b4) étoiles sur 5 A good entry in the intermediate field of books 5 août 2008
Par Joshua Newsham - Publié sur Amazon.com
I saw this book at a friend's house recently. I checked the table of contents and went through a couple sections.

This is a very nice look at tactical play and developing pattern recognition. Several examples of a theme are given, followed by quiz positions. Yusupov also recommends a method for working through the variations given. This is not just a book of tactical puzzles, but a guide toward improving a player's eye for combinations.

Yusupov, along with his trainer Dvoretsky, has written some of the best advanced chess manuals. Here he writes for the beginning to intermediate level chess player who is striving to improve.

Highly recommended!

HASH(0x8fb51630) étoiles sur 5 Book that would improve your chess understanding 2 juin 2010
Par Ransith Fernando - Publié sur Amazon.com
Achat vérifié
I first read about this series of three books in the FIDE site since it had won an award as the best book for 2009 from FIDE. I was planning to buy the second and third volumes of this series only and I was advised by a really good chess player to buy all three books including this book "the fundermentals". I am very happy that I purchased this book.

Normally chess books are written on some specific area of chess like openings endgames, strategy, positional play, calculation of variations, tatctics or there are books that have most of these topics but a lot of text to read and advice to take.

In this book Yusupov has 24 chapters that covers the different areas given above. There are two chapters on openings and about 11 chapters on tactics and one or two chaptors on the rest of the topics. The topics are mixed together so that you do not get an overdose of one area. this makes the book interesting. The fun part is each chapter has about half of half page to read followed by about 10 examples that explains basic ideas. In each chapter the contents are summerized and given to know your learning objectives. This is followed by a test of 12 positions. You can mark your self in the test and based on your results you can either re do the chapter or move to the next chapter. Each chapter takes 1-2 hours to complete. The books ends with a final test of 24 positions. Some of the chapters are tough. There are also nine book recommendations for further reading (non of them are Yusupovs own books) so I feel he gives a very balanced and unbiased advice. I believe this is a book worth reading and re reading.

HASH(0x8fb51c24) étoiles sur 5 Extremely High Quality Chess Instruction 28 juillet 2012
Par R. Tobias - Publié sur Amazon.com
Achat vérifié
This is the first in a series of nine books designed to help take you from about 1500 ELO (maybe 1500-1600 USCF roughly) to master strength. Key is that the material in these books is only a help. The areas covered in the series include tactics, positional play, strategy, calculating variations, openings and endgames. For example, some of the 24 chapters in this volume are on Discovered Attack, Centralization of the pieces, Pawn Endgames, The value of the pieces, Double Attack, Open files and Outposts, and Weak Points. Yusupov is very honest about things, and emphasizes that in addition to going through his material you must play in many tournaments, analyze your games thoroughly and read supplemental texts, including playing through well annotated master games. The ideal, however, is to have a chess coach, so this series is basically for those who for whatever reason don't or can't use a coach. Unlike another very prominent Russian GM chess author, there are no extravagant claims in this series of the 'Master x number of positions and you will be a strong tournament player' type. Yusupov is for the player who is willing to work hard at improving, and realizes that there are no short cuts to mastery of the game. The format of these books, as other reviewers have pointed out, is a hybrid of an instructional manual and a book of exercises. It is probably closer to the latter, as the instructional material is so concise. But when Yusupov does speak, it is worthwhile paying close attention, as you are getting very distilled and important chess wisdom. The format is very well done, with a brief instructional section with several examples. There follows then the test section, usually with 12 positions to analyze. Yusupov insists that you write down all your answers in detail and then play over every single variation on a board. No computer help is allowed. The choice of material has been guided by Yusupov's great chess knowledge and experience as a chess trainer and has been refined through student feedback, so I have to believe that the positions chosen to study are about as well chosen as you are going to find. Is the material 'dry', as famous American chess coach and author Jeremy Silman has stated? I would have to say yes, but dry does not mean boring, nor does it in anyway comment on the quality of the material, which is very high. If you are looking to fill in the holes in your own chess knowledge, even if you are rated higher than the intended audience, this series is a great place to do so.
