So, why should you buy this book....? 13 novembre 2002
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
GM Lev Alburt wants to introduce you to a system of assessing a given position, quantifing this assessment and plotting these values on a graph. This in itself is nothing new, so to make it a book, Mr. Alburt introduces his own invention: A "system of predicted results", which is basically the claim that a pattern exists for all chess positions, and if you can learn to recognize this pattern, you should be on your way to mastery.
"The ability to judge a position accurately is at the heart of good chess", as it says on the back cover. Problem is, the book doesn't teach you to do that. It assumes you are able to identify the relative strength (good or bad and how much so) of a given move and the resulting position - which Mr. Alburt then teaches you to evaulate numerically (a half-point advantage, say). For this reason alone, the back cover's "Whether you are a beginner or a master" should qualify as false declaration!
It is certainly not for beginners.
One cannot escape the feeling that this book was published more for the benefit of the bank accounts of the author and the editor than for any budding chess master.
Supporting this view is the downright silly placement on p.37 of a half-page ad(!) for the US Chess Federation, urging you to sign up a member.
A biography of Mr. Alburt is on p.199 and the editor, Mr.Lawrence, is presented on p.297. Why?
To round things off, an ad for Mr. Alburt's services as a tutor has been placed on p.347.
Together with Mr. Alburt's constant references to other works written by himself and the not so subtle pitching of Mr.Lawrence's marketing and publishing firm, leaves you wondering what this book is actually meant to be.
A book very smartly packaged and promoted but also a book very unable to live up to it's own hype.
I recommend you don't buy this book to avoid feeling cheated.

This book sure looks flashy, and boy, there are a lot of pretty graphs and colors. However, this is nothing in here that is revolutionary. In fact, the only worthwhile part comes at the beginning of the book and that is nothing more than a rehash of Silman and Kotov.
I enjoyed a couple of Alburt's earlier books (like Just the Facts!) but this book is a real downer. Not worth [money], let alone [money]!

Much better than its rating! 15 octobre 2014
Par Randall K Julian - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
The other reviewers of this book have completely missed point. I have several of Mr. Alburt's books, and I think he really did bring the Soviet Chess School methods to the US. I also have all of Kotov's books and the statement that it is a rehash of Kotov is completely wrong. The very best part of this book is not in any other chess book you will ever read: "Specialization". The idea is that you study one position in depth. This book uses as an example the Isolated Queen Pawn as a position to dive into as deep as you possibly can. "He who fears an isolated Queen's Pawn should give up Chess." -Siegbert Tarrasch. So choosing one of the most interesting positions and teaching you how to tear it completely apart is worth the price of this book alone. In the following chapter, Alburt gives his analysis. You can compare this to Isolani Strategy (Chess University) and see what you think. By giving an exercise like this and an example of what it looks like when you do it right, you can pick other key positions from other parts of the game and do the same - one position at a time - deep thinking and deep analysis. This is the same type of recommendations real teachers are making when they suggest you do chess studies. I know many chess masters who use this "one position at a time, but deeply" idea - so it is for both beginners and masters.

The first part of the book is also much more valuable (and accessible to beginners) than the reviews suggest. The idea of making an evaluation graph by move is outstanding. First you should make your own graph and then you can compare it to a chess engine. The hard problems in Chess Exam And Training Guide: Rate Yourself And Learn How To Improve (Chess Exams) are positions where you are asked "who stands better". Try it on master games, try it on your own games. Make a graph and then compare it to a chess engine and see if your evaluations are similar or different and why. In your own games, make the plot and notice where the swings are. Compare that to the time you spent thinking on the move (you do record your thinking time, don't you?) and you will see what types of positions give you trouble.

I am a low rated beginning adult, but I was delighted when I saw this book at a bookseller at a tournament. I snapped it up right away.

There is no way to make chess easy, so it is unrealistic to expect a book to make you better, only study and practice will make you better. Worse, the other reviewers apparently don't understand how little money there is in being a chess professional. Advertisements and some self-promotion are the consequences of the poor overall situation US chess professionals find themselves in. Do you really think someone as good as GM Alburt wanted a USCF advertisement in his book? Except for the idea that playing in USCF tournaments is the only way to find out how strong you are (sorry: ICC and Chess.com ratings are terribly inflated compared to real weekend tournaments).

I recommend this book: if only for the chapters on "Specialization" Part 1 and 2 - they are awesome.

Struggling chess player 7 décembre 2007

Format: Broché Achat vérifié
If I followed what was stated in the movie "Bambi" I wouldn't say anything at all. However, this book really is far short of expectations. I bought this book in the hopes of finding something that teaches how to evaluate positions, to help with formulating a plan. Maybe this book might be O.K. for computer programmers or something, but it's pretty much worthless for chessplayers trying to learn to play better chess.
