Manufacturer Description

Optimise your Chess Thinking


This book has many large clear colour diagrams. It is designed to be read several times. Each time it is reread, you may grasp points that were previously obscure to you.

Introduction



Optimise means to make better. In practice even just making something better will be very useful.


We optimise our computers. We defragment fragmented files and delete unused ones.
We make computers faster and more efficient. Why not optimise our own thinking?
We want to think positive thoughts that serve us, not negative thoughts that are destructive to us.


Chess is a game of thinking. The more optimal our chess thinking is, the better we will play, At the very least, we will play the same moves, but more quickly. Moving quicker has certain practical advantages.


FIDE master and national Correspondence Champion Bill Jordan shows you how to optimise your chess thinking.
