Product Description:

An innovative book on game-winning strategy for players at the intermediate level--from a master chess coach. Every truth about chess must be coached in context, and the book's interactive teacher-student dialogue does just that. Weeramantry teaches how to think during a chess game. 300 diagrams.

Summary: The best chess book I have read next to Chernev's Logical Chess
Rating: 5

I had always shied away from this book because most of the games contained in the lessons were games played by Mr. Weeramantry. For some reason I was under the impression that an Instructional Chess Anthology should be made up of games of the chess "superstars'. WOW, was I wrong. This book is exceptionally instructional. Mr. Weeramantry's uses of a loose version of the socratic method helps the reader really dive into the games. I have already noticed myself applying some of the lessons, without really trying to!! This means that the lessons are seeping into my brain in a very clear and organic way.

I do think anyone interested in this book should first read a basic primer on chess, a book or two on tactics and then the Irving Chernev classic Logical Chess: Move By Move. After those books and a few games under one's belt you will be ready for Mr. Weeramantry's wonderfully instructional Best Lessons Of A Chess Coach.

p.s. A really good book on beginning tactics is Dan Heisman's, Back To Basics: Tactics. There is plenty of explanation AND plenty of puzzles to work through.

Summary: Excellent Book for Beginners
Rating: 5

This is an absolutely wonderful first or second book on chess (first in case someone already taught you the basics). Much of the winnings moves I ever make still come from this book. It is well-written; the advice is clear and straightforward.
Just go through the first lesson - home away from home - and fall in love with it.
It should be reread every now and then, just to be on top of it. I love it.
