Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

Games are the essence of the book. Their selection is refreshingly original, unlike many other works that recycle highly-publicized contests (a fault of Garry Kasparov's 'Predecessor' series, for example) (...) We don't find the lengthy and convoluted analysis that is featured in most books about attack (...) Thoroughly enjoyable and recommended to every chess fan. --John Watson, The Week In Chess

Where Garry Kasparov likes to hide behind thick trees with variations, Timman always makes sure that the reader fully understands why the game develops the way it does. --Harald Keilhack, Schach Magazine

A well produced book by an author who never fails to impart some elements of his great erudition and insight. --British Chess Magazine

Présentation de l'éditeur

A world famous grandmaster explains the modern style of attacking chess to amateur chess players. Jan Timman teaches how to build up an advantage in the game and how to convert that advantage into an aggressive strategy and into great attacking moves. He has selected the most instructive attacking games of great players like Kasparov, Topalov, Karpov, Shirov, and Judit Polgar in order to explain to amateur chess players the basic ideas of modern attacks and their successful execution.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Very instructive book 21 janvier 2008
Par Alexander Goncharov - Publié sur Amazon.com
Kaleidoscope of attacking chess revealing different styles of the current top chess players. It is very interesting book, more impressive than other similar good titles such as Improve Your Attacking Chess by Simon Williams and Secrets of Attacking Chess by Mihail Marin, yet Jan Timman's presentation is superior in terms of clear exposition of the game flow to the point when the attack is about to unfold. I think this book will be very helpful for those young chess players who want to develop an attacking chess style by analyzing the games of their favorite top players. The book is a sheer pleasure to read thanks to its very clear verbose style, and a large number of beautiful games displaying the highest level of chess mastery in action. Jan Timman's gift to explain complex things in an accessible manner makes the book suitable for intermediate chess players, who want to grasp that illusive image of chess style.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great for amateur players 20 décembre 2006
L'évaluation d'un enfant - Publié sur Amazon.com
A very instructive book because it makes clear there are different ways of obtaining the initiative in a game, by pointing at the differences in style of various top players. Timman almost always concentrates at the essence of a position, without bothering you with pages of variations and subvariations. Maybe it takes the confidence of a top player like Timman to leave out most of the stuff computers come up with.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 New, Interesting, Good Style 29 décembre 2006
Par JonathanS - Publié sur Amazon.com
Why I am qualified to review this book: I used to be ranked #25 on the top 100 list for my age. I won third in the N. CA jr. High champs, 3rd at a LA Masters. I have had the honor of working with FM Banawa, from the Philippines, who is now rated 2307 according to January FIDE rating supplement. I have also work with other strong players, with ratings over 2400 USCF. So, I am no stranger to books, especially attacking books, the other book that I thought was really really good was Attack with Tal.

Most Attacking books are showing examples of the position and what happens (in reference to Larry Christiansen's Rocking the Ramparts and Storming the Barricades). This book Rocks the Ramparts and Storms the Barricades even better then LarryC did (in reference to Larry Christiansen's 2 books, one for Gambit Publishers, the other for Batsford Publishers)! A very impressive book. Jan Timman starts annalyzing from move 1, and tells us up front what happens. He looks over the games of GMs Anatoly Karpov (Boa Constrictor), Jan Timman (Iniatiative), Garry Kasparov (Demolitions), Nigel Short (Elegance), Ivan Sokolov (Target Practice), Vasily Ivanchuk (Origional and Depth), Viswanathan Anand (Efficiency), Alexey Shirov (Creative) Vessilin Topalov (Wild Adventures), Judit Polgar (Agression), and Andrey Volokitin (dogged determination). He then goes over a brief summary of the players, then shows us some of their games, why he gave them their names.

Anatoly Karpov - because he sacrifices an exchange to keep the enemy king in the center, and then just attacks them, and transposes into a won endgame, which is a very efficient and effective style.
Jan Timman - Because Jan Timman seems to grab the Initiative in the middle game, and then launch a interesting and also beautiful attack.
Garry Kasparov - Well as we all know, GM Kasparov is brilliant. He just destroys everyone. He is very strong, and is by far the best player in the world. Kasparov just attacks!
Nigel Short - Short is very strong at attacking chess. He has a nice elegant flow to his chess, and that is why Timman labeled him "Attractive Ellegance". All of the games that he played here are very nice, and extremely good quality.
Ivan Sokolov - Sokolov is a strong GM, who is well known for his positional understanding. Sometimes, he wakes up and decides that it is a day where he will go after his opponent's king. When that happens, he almost never misses his target, and Timman proves it through examples.
Vasily Ivanchuk - Vasily "chuky" Ivanchuk has been a top GM for years, and was thought to be the next work champion in the early 1990s. He is very strong positional player, yet he is also vrey strong in attacking chess. He is just plain 100% Original in his ideas.
Vishy Anand - We all know Anand is one of the best players in the world, if not the best. He is always very efficient, with a deep positional understanding, yet he also knows how to attack, and is very good at attacking chess.
Alexey Shirov - The 2006 Tal, Alexey Shirov is a brilliant GM, and has been a member of the world elite for years. His creativity propelled him there. He has had some nice wins over all of the top GMs in the world, and is known for his razor sharpk, creative style.
Vesselin Topalov - He is always well prepared, and his opening preparation is based on that he can get a good position where he has a chance to launch an attack on the enemy king. He takes lots of risks, and is also ex-world champion because he lost 5-6 in classical and 2.5 - 1.5 in rapid chess to Vladimir Kramnik.
Judit Polgar - She has been known for years to be a very strong attacking player. Timman shows us this through examples again.
Andrey Volokitin - Volokitin is a very strong players, who was once ranked #25 in the world. In GM Timman's opinion, his play and style reminds him of Vlemovich when he was younger (Vlemovich is the guy who invented the Bc4 Qe2 0-0-0 system against the classical Sicilian) a player with a head of crazy ideas.

Next, he showed through 33 more examples common tactical themes in chess, a "quiet move", which is really just a knock out move, that limits the enemy king's mobility, and its just game over. He gives numerous other examples of other common themes. It was very interesting.

Timman proved to me that this is a good book, and I will be buying another Jan Timman book. He is very good writer, and player. He shows us how to build an attack step by step. I recommend this book to all, strong attackers and not so strong attackers, Patzers (club players) to GMs, this book can improve your chess a tremendous amount! I, as a very strong attacker, really enjoyed the book, and learned a lot. It is to mention that I didn't even need a board to go over the games, there were enough diagrams, for me, so that I could take a little checkpoint every now and then, and know exactly what was going on.
Jan Timman, an ex-member of the world elite, and still a very strong player, he is the man! He is one of the most qualified people in this world to be writing a book about attacking chess. He is very good with the Initiative, and very good when needed to attack.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 very well commented by the senior Dutch grandmaster - who was once 'the best of the West' behind Karpov and Korchnoi 26 février 2015
Par Frans Hoynck van Papendrecht - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
Interesting selection of games, very well commented by the senior Dutch grandmaster - who was once 'the best of the West' behind Karpov and Korchnoi. For some reason quite a lot of the grandmasters from Holland (like Timman, Ree, Donner, Van der Sterren and last but not least ex world champion Euwe) belong to the best and most pleasantly writers on chess there are and have been.
But most important with this book is that a player on club level can learn a lt of it to get better!
4.0 étoiles sur 5 An excellent book. NOT an attacking manual but great! 19 juillet 2015
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This is a great annotated games collection of modern masters! Timman sorts the games by player (3 games each player). There are 11 players (Karpov, Judit Polgar, Shirov, Anand etc.)

Timman's annotations are wonderful without being overbearing. It is NOT a manual of attacking chess. It IS a great annotated games collection centered around attacking chess.
