A book usually has to satisfy all three criteria to make it onto my list, or xhernev not all three, then at least the last two. Let me state something that may be far from obvious: Almost any chess book treating material beyond the moves and rules should be beneficial. I truly believe you have a tremendous amount of flexibility in choosing books that work for you.

Everyone has unique interests, strengths, and weaknesses as a chess player. It is also useful, in my opinion, for players all the way up to and including national master.

I consider myself fortunate in that I was given it as my first chess book, when I was fourteen, by cehss math teacher with whom I used to play chess every day during an open period in my class schedule. When the year began he was a better player than I was; as the fall term passed we became roughly equal; by the end of the year he could hardly get a draw from me.

I found our games so interesting and valuable to my chess development that I dropped a spring term course that got in the way of our daily meeting. It was a mandatory hands-on course, my choice of shop or electronics, but the school year was —Bobby Fischer had just won the world championship—and apparently the school administration accepted the excuse that the course would have interfered with my daily chess games.

They had little choice, because I refused to report to the classroom and kept playing chess instead. Why is Logical Chess so valuable?

It reinforces repeatedly the critical importance of quick and efficient development in the opening, careful piece placement, strong squares, weak squares, creating threats, neutralizing threats, initiative, counterplay, obtaining an advantage, exploiting an advantage, turning positional superiority into decisive winning tactics, and patience in the endgame.


Yes, the openings are older, but other more modern books in your study program can make up that deficiency.

Personally, I find extremely useful and reassuring the implicit calm attitude, pervasive throughout the book, that the chessboard is a rational world with rules we can understand and apply, while admitting many exceptions based on special circumstances; where truth can be discovered and justice triumphs in the end.

Finally, as if more justification were needed, Chernev is a hcess writer: This post is long enough.
