Très neuf. Livre très intéressant pour bien connaitre l'art de la défense tactique aux échecs. SOLTIS est un très bon auteur et un très bon pédagogue.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Nice revision of the original book, not really "New" defence, and a bad Kindle edition to boot. 9 octobre 2016
Par Common Sense - Publié sur
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I own both this book and the original "The Art of Defense in Chess". I found Soltis' assessment that the actual practice of defense in chess has shifted in the interim to be accurate; it's clearly evident from comparing the games of, say, Petrosian in the 1960's, to the games of Anand in the 2000's. The original edition was published in 1986.

You'd expect the new edition to draw heavily on new material and leave behind the old games of the 1st edition behind (after using a few as a baseline). After all, there wouldn't be a need for a new edition unless things had changed in the way the game is played, as the title implies.

But most of the chapters in the book (Chapter 7, Risk, is the main exception) have _more old games_ (pre-1990) than _new_. If this is an exposition on the "New Defence", why are the illustrations of "new defence" ideas being made with games from 1903? It's not clear that this is a step forward from Soltis' original in terms of the actual theory of defence.

I enjoyed the book and found it useful. It's well-organized and the ideas are easily understood and retained. But I'm not left with the impression it's worth replacing the original book.

A note on publishing chess in e-book format: I found the Kindle edition miserably difficult to read, because the typesetting uses figurine notation, and the characters are outline-only, not solid. Fortunately, no other chess book I've bought in e-book format does this (and for good reason). This transparent appearance (and their size) makes them _very_ difficult to interpret, unless you're willing to hold your tablet less than 12" from your face, or use a font size that's so big there can't be more than 10 words on a line (which I find too disruptive for rapid reading).

In addition, the diagrams are not crisp at all, they're fuzzy, as if they'd been scanned from a printed page. You might think it's a defect with Kindle, but my edition of Fundamental Chess Openings, published by Gambit Press, has diagrams that look like they're in HD by comparison.

So, the book is good, but not a necessary replacement for the original, and _don't buy the Kindle edition_ unless you have 20/15 eyesight and want it tested.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 A new classic! 24 mars 2015
Par KaleAndMushrooms - Publié sur
Format: Broché
I have fond memories of the original Art of Defence in Chess by Andrew Soltis. It was the book that took me to master level. Suddenly, I found that I could win 90% of my games against players below 2100 level simply by letting them attack and timing a counter blow. My original copy is well worn. I've lent it to chess friends and students, and can't recommend it enough. One of my students managed to get the copy signed by Arnold Schwarzenegger at a book signing!

Imagine now my delight when I find a rewrite of the classic using modern games. It's almost too good to be true. This new edition offers more insights into the dynamic nature of attack and defense. I would almost claim that the book really is about positional play, because these are the kinds of factors one must weigh when conducting the game positionally.

Other books will teach you things like the static weaknesses of doubled pawns, and books about dynamic factors tend to be geared towards attacking. This book looks at dynamic factors through the eyes of the defender. It's a relevant skill to have in every game, because when one is winning positionally, most players nowadays will launch desperate counter-play, and being able to negotiate the trade offs is essential on the path to winning.

While not as advanced as Dvoretsky's work on the subject, this book is perfect for expert players hoping to reach master level.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Excellent Read! 6 janvier 2017

Never owned "The Art of Defence", Soltis' original edition of this book.

My over-the-board rating is 1700-1800.

Have read many of Soltis's other books: Bobby Fischer Rediscovered ; How to Study Chess; Pawn Structure Chess; What it Takes to Become a Chess Master; Frank Marshall US Open Chess Champion.

This book is EXCELLENT! Soltis does not overwhelm you with a quagmire of calcuations and focuses on what is really going on in a postion with just enough detail to really hit home with the instruction.

I wish that he would use his expertise to write a book on how to attack.
