|In this comprehensive workbook,
International Chess Master Jeremy Silman tests a player's strengths and
weaknesses with 131 problems that cover openings, tactical and
positional middlegames, and endgames.
Unique among books that present problems and their solutions, but offer little actual instruction, The Reassess Your Chess Workbook takes the player through the processes of problem solving and analysis
and provides advice and instruction that ultimately helps him discover
the major flaws imbedded in his play.
Through this method, the
player is led to an understanding of a thought system that will add
hundreds of rating points to his chess strength.
This workbook may be utilized with or without Silman's earlier book How To Reassess Your Chess.
It may be used in the problem/solution manner described above, or its
section of solutions may be read as an instruction manual itself.
However one chooses to read this book, it will surely prove a font of
wisdom and insight for all students of the game.
