3.0 étoiles sur 5 Practical advice; not in-depth analysis 24 mars 2002
Par Michael Ryan - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book is aimed at the competitive chess player. Over a third of the book is in the section titled "At the Board" and time considerations factor heavily into the presentation.
Only a dozen pages are devoted to the opening and they are mostly aimed at evaluating chess books on unusual openings. This section can be skipped entirely without much loss.
The middlegame has all of 20 pages dedicated to it, but they do manage to offer some "practical" advice once again. Most of it comes in "blurbs" - little nuggets of advice based on what has worked for a very successful GM.
The rest of the book is devoted to the endgame and although it recounts some well-known ending basics such as opposition, triangulation, and R+P vs R ending, it also contains some very good information that is not nearly so well known. Such includes: Black's ideal defensive pawn formation in a 4v3 pawn ending with all pawns on the same side; why the c pawn offers the best winning chances in a Q+P vs Q ending; and some handy rules for R vs N and R vs B pawnless endings.
On the whole, the book is quite "practical" and probably worth the price to a fair number of club players of lesser strength.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 practical book 1 mars 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
The emphasis of this book is improvement for the least time effort and it delivers. Nunn's tips on how to calculate variations and his dissection of Kotov's famous tree of analysis are excellent. The chapter on offbeat openings is a must read as Nunn basically refutes the Latvian Gambit and the Moeller Attack in the Giuco Piano in 10 pages!
I particularly liked the section on the endgame. I am not about to sit through a 200 page endgame manual and memorize things like "this ending is a win with K on e7 and R at a2 but a draw if the K is on d6; however, if the passed pawn is a RP, then the White K must be on the 3 squares in front of the RP, etc." Nunn gives good basic rules and examples in the endgame which, if you learn, should cover 90 percent of your endgames.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Intelligent writing delivers the goods 12 octobre 2005
Par A Reader - Publié sur Amazon.com
The highlighted comments of Dr J Sarfati are well written - he is an excellent Amazon reviewer. I agree that John Nunn's book is a goldmine of useful tips, and includes many a remedy for bad habits. The great thing about Nunn's writing is that he does not have an agenda. Unlike, say, an author trying to sell you his book on a dubious opening variation. Nunn just tells it as it is.

The chapter on building an opening repertoire should be compulsory reading for anyone serious about improvement, or who wishes to better their competitive results. Keys lessons: a) never, ever, play the Latvian Gambit, and b) choose a sensible and sound opening repertoire.

GM Nunn devotes the first third of the book to the role of decision making (including the analysis tree thing) and examining why oversights happen. There follows the opening section, which mainly consists of that stern warning: do not be seduced by the lure of those off-beat lines. Unsound variations will do nothing for your long term improvement. The comes the middlegame section, dealing with good positions, bad positions, attack and defense.

I was surprised to find the endgame section equally fascinating. The final 50 or so pages feature all manner of practical situations, and cover a wide range of typical scenarios. You will never take a routine endgame for granted again after seeing these amazing examples.

I rate this the best book ever written for the competitive player.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A Meditation On Chess Themes Than A Primer On Improvement 18 septembre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
The book is interesting primarily as a example of grandmaster style thinking about calculating variations, judging opening repertoires, middle pitfallls, and basic endgame knowledge. But be warned: it is not a primer. The author has not devised a "chess study plan" for self-improvement. Anyone looking for commandments about calculating move sequences, avoiding time trouble ("just don't get in it"), opening choices, detailed strategic planning, etc., should be looking at books specifically aimed at giving a program. This book is more like listening to a knowledgeable Grandmaster lecture at a quiet chess club, sipping some wine and discussing topics.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Second Edition is Expanded not Revised 31 mars 2007
Par USCF Expert - Publié sur Amazon.com
Notice this edition of Nunn's "Secrets of Practical Chess" is called a "New Enlarged Edition". No claim is made about revising, updating or improving exsisting material from the first edition. The [...]review of the new edition claims that the first 4 chapters are identical to the original. Only the chapters on Using a Computer and Chess Literature are expanded.

If you do not own the first edition the second is a must buy. Otherwise you can pass on the new enlarged edition.
