Don’t have a Kindle? Nov 24, I don’t what I’d have done without this book.

Siles Press; 4th edition October 15, Language: Weekly digest for download. Silman writes it himself, he “literally wrote this fourth edition from scratch”. I’m certainly not claiming that I completely absorbed everything in this book; far from it.

I must confess I haven’t ‘read’ this book. Larger print and more white space – I find this makes it much easier to read.


If you’ve ever had a look around for a good chess book, you’ve undoubtably run jeremh at least a mention of this book. Hundreds of games brought to life by instruction-rich prose, and stories that offer humor while highlighting various lessons, vividly illustrate all the book’s topics in a manner that’s both personal and fun.

Book Review: How To Reassess Your Chess –

Currently I’m rated about here on Chess. Supposedly Silman completely rewrote the book “from scratch” was the phrase that caught my eye greatly expanded it, rearranged it, chopped out the Basic Endgame chapter the chapter that inexplicably OPENED the 3rd edition!

I can’t wait to do the exercises of the workbook companion book. See all reviews. Now we get down to the real nitty-gritty: Feb 22, William Schram rated it it was amazing Shelves: It’s one of those books that every chess player should own, in jreemy estimation.

Since this is a book that must be studied if you hope for improvement, it isn’t something that you read cover to cover mindlessly. Try the Kindle edition and experience these great reading features: This is the book that I personally found the most useful.

How to Reassess Your Chess: The Complete Chess Mastery Course by Jeremy Silman

The chapter titles are promising and even serve as a decent outline of material that someone of my level fairly low should study to improve their middle game, but the actual content isn’t there. The 4th edition is more humorous! Jeremy Silman is arguably the best chess author in history. The rest of this book is dedicated to the Silman thinking technique. My chess has been reassessed. Another huge change is the addition of Chess Psychology, 90 pages long!


Once that done, you reassews go to the preferred places of rooks: Turning Chess Misconceptions into Chess Mastery.

Page 1 of 1 Start over Page 1 of 1. This fourth and final edition completely rewritten and featuring all new examples takes Silman’s groundbreaking concept of imbalances to a whole new level.

Space Spacespace space! Like any other imbalance, don’t wait them to magically happen!

Thank you for your feedback. Search for ways to punish your opponent’s vulnerable king. Also I recommend Weapons of Chess by Pandolfini.
