a classic but underated 2 juin 1998
Par Un client - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This book is the best book I have ever read on the openings in chess. The author recommends understanding of the openings rather than to try to memorize endless variations. After giving the first principles of the openings, he then shows how the openings should be played using these principles. He also devotes a section on exploiting the weak squares of your opponent. He classifies the openings under four catagories, which is very helpful in organizing the ideas behind these openings. This book is a masterpiece on opening theory and practice. Unfortunately, it is one of those books that goes largely ignored. Probably because people listen to "experts" too much, instead of thinking for themselves. This book is the best on the openings and cannot become "dated."

In Descriptive Notation 10 janvier 2002
Par T. Suh - Publié sur
Format: Broché
An excellent book which is not out-dated and for the price an absolute steal. Though some older opening books can be criticized as a tad bit out-date most can still be used today to learn the basics structures of different openings. Besides, the actual variations used in a game works better if it is your own creation rather than a memorized version and this applies to beginners as well as the experts. Excellent for intermediate players, but can also be used by all. If you are not comfortable with descriptive notations, GET COMFORTABLE! You will be missing out on a lot of excellent books (which are usually half the price). Being comfortable with descriptive as well as algabraic gives you the option and the flexibility to buy whatever chess books are out there, especially the best!

As good as any 4 mai 2009
Par Statistician - Publié sur
Format: Broché
This book was originally written in 1935. It is in descriptive notation (P-K4), 141 pages plus 7 pages of solutions to the 36 questions scattered through it.

As its title suggests, it is about the general principles behind the different openings. The explanations are clear and easy to follow, and as good as any I've seen. It keeps things simple and doesn't list dozens of complex variations that would overwhelm a beginner. The fact that it is only $8 is icing on the cake. Recommended!

I find only minor shortcoming for this sort of book. Algebraic notation would be better these days, but we have only the laziness of the publisher to blame for that. Descriptive notation should not deter a potential reader - it is no harder to learn than learning how a knight moves! The modern and hypermodern lines do not get coverage proportional to their current popularity. When the book was written, Alekhine's defence was new on the scene, and it got 3 pages. The Sicilian got 4 pages.

Chess openings is a very difficult subject for beginners. When does the opening end and the middlegame start? How do I know that at the end of a given variation there are "about equal chances" or that "white has a slight advantage"? For general principles, this book is exactly what a beginner needs. For specific variations and their detailed analysis, things that only a serious chess player would worry about, one needs books that specialize in one opening or only one line (e.g. Sicilian Najdorf). To stay current, one needs the Chess Informant. The trouble with such books is that they get outdated very quickly. These days a better option is a computerized database, possibly with a subscription service to stay current. Computers have changed the way an advanced player studies openings. But the beginner still needs a book like this one. For a more modern introduction, with algebriac notation, I recommend Seirawan's book "Winning Chess Openings", ISBN 1857443497. It is thicker at 250 pages, but is easy to read.
No single book will convert you from a beginner to a master - only hard work can do that. However, each book you read will put a little more wind in your sail.

Really excellent book 18 juin 2013
Par M. H. Smith - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I read this little book the first time almost 30 years ago upon the recommendation of a very well known chess book seller. While I didn't totally understand it all, I faithfully read it trying to absorb all I could.

I noticed it on my shelf recently and pondered whether it justified a re-read nearly 700 rating points later. After wrestling with the question ( I mistakingly believed it had nothing further to offer) for some time- I decided to give it my attention for a couple of weeks. I attempt to re-read every one of my many chess books periodically to see what I can soak up at each new level of understanding.

I have not been disappointed. While it is old, and in descriptive ( get over it now! It takes all of about ten minutes to figure out descriptive and there are still a large number of worthwhile books on the market written in DN) it contains ideas, principles, and general guidelines that guide even the openings of today.

Knosko-borovsky's writing is pretty much timeless in my opinion.

You are not going to find the dozen different variations currently considered playable in the Sicilian dragon Yugoslav attack on the 15th move here, but you are going to find chess truth that will guide you for many years to come no Matter what you play.

If you are ready to actually understand something rather than just memorize lists of moves (some of which will be outdated by the time you read this review) get this book!

The best single resource I have read on chess openings 6 février 1999

Format: Broché
This book is very well structured. It is easy to read and will give the intermediate player a much better understanding of the chess openings. I really enjoyed the traps illustrated.
