5.0 étoiles sur 5 Relevant Chess Tips 19 mars 2009
Par Nimzo-Karpov - Publié sur
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
Soltis does it again! If you are interested in 250 relevant chess Tips & Insights, this is the book. The book reminds me of Jack Collins 1978 book, Maxims of Chess. Most topic areas of chess are covered, e.g., Attack, Calculation,Defense,etc. Take, for example, the topic STUDYING. One of the Tips is: "You only know you are improving when your opponents seems to be playing badly more often than before." Some of the Tips will be familiar, but many of them will be new. Each Tip is accompanied by a diagram and game fragment, one per page. The production quality is also excellent. Hightly recommended.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Below 2200, get this book 28 janvier 2011
Par chungking - Publié sur
I am a USCF Expert, and own hundreds of chess books - this is one of my handful of favorites.


Firstly because the information is presented in bite-sized chunks. You can open the book to any page, and nibble on one idea. Again and again. That's how I learn. I've been playing for 25 years, and I still find ideas here that are new and interesting to me - for instance, that Q+N are so much preferable to Q+B - and why. Makes sense - and this complementarity is a powerful concept with many applications, even in life off the board.

And secondly, because this book, as with Silman's work, is at a level that I can understand and apply. The vast majority of IM and GM-produced work is way, way, above the needs of the typical class player. If you are rated 16, 17, 1800 ... face the facts: you need to work on a whole lot of basics before you will get much useful out of Watson or Dvoretsky. This book presents many of those basics in a fun and accessible way.

Great bathroom reader, too - deserves to be much better known than it is.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great book, terrible Kindle version. 22 novembre 2013
Par Jeffrey Massung - Publié sur
Format:Format Kindle|Achat vérifié
This is a great book if you love chess. And, if you are in the 1200-1700 rating range, there's probably several nuggets in here that will help you become a better player if you take them to heart.

However... do *NOT* get the Kindle version of this book. The panels with the board setups used - at least one per "wisest thing said" - are all in the wrong places. They are all there, but on the wrong page. This is can make trying to learn/study from this book quite difficult.

1.0 étoiles sur 5 The worst thing written about chess in quite a while. 20 janvier 2010
Par johnnyqb - Publié sur
You hear it said now and then that a book is a "labor of love." What is the opposite of that? A labor of greed? I doubt Andrew Soltis made a lot of money off this book, "The Wisest Things Ever Said About Chess," but I for one am upset that my library spent taxpayer dollars acquiring this joke of a book. The book follows the often used, rarely successful format of one position or idea per page. Each position is intended to illustrate one famous chess tidbit of wisdom. The idea is good enough, but here the execution is just absolutely lame as can be. The very first page contains the "wise" statement, "Modern Chess is much too concerned with things like pawn structure. Forget it. Checkmate ends the game." This is wise? A similar nugget for life might be, "Modern man concerns himself too much with finding a mate and a challenging career. Forget it. Death ends life." Soltis presents an example where each side launches an aggressive attack, but one side wins. There is no analysis of the position, no discussion of why the moves were chosen, or why they succeeded. Do you really need to be told that checkmate ends a game? This book is beyond bad, and is of no discernible instructional value. Each page's diagram can be summarized as follows: "here is a position in a chess game. This guy made this move and won." This book just screams, "fulfilling contractual obligation." I am baffled that it has 5 star reviews. Clearly these are Soltis' relatives. Hey, I like some of Soltis' books, like Pawn Structure Chess and The Art of Defense in Chess. But save your money on this one. Perhaps if it was about a dollar fifty you could pick it for airplane perusal. This book makes The Tao of Chess look like a good chess book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A fantastic book about chess wisdom 15 octobre 2008
Par Chess amateur - Publié sur
This is a rather unique chess book. Andre Soltis has filled this book with 288 ideas and general principles. For each idea, we get story behind the idea and an instructive example with one or several diagrams. This is an easy, instructive and historical chess book which is fun to read. Can you ask for more? For chess players rated 0-3000 :-)
