Funnily enough, I was given Chess for Zebras as an xmas prezzie a few years back by my brother. It really is excellent, and will definiately make you look at how you approach the game. Thoroughly recommended.

Has anyone read "Chess for Zebras" by Rowson ?

It gets good reviews online. Santa is asking for ideas.

I've bought a few books since my last post. I picked up 2 New In Chess Yearbooks, number 29 & 94. Also bought "The Ruy Lopez Revisited" by Sokolov, "Excelling At Chess Calculation" by Aagaard, and "Dangerous Weapons, The Sicilian" by Emms & Palliser.

Just bought "Play 1.b3" by Odessky. I used to play this many years ago when there were no books on it. Not sure I'll play this again, but it looked interesting.

thinking about "Play 1.b4" by Yury Lapshun and Nick Conticello. sounds like a good book to me. shock your opponents with 1.b4. i find it very fun doing weird openings so i thought this book would be good for me. also looking at "Winning Chess Strategies" by Yasser Seirawan and with Jeremy Silman.check'em out if you don't have them. www.uscfsales.com has them on sale.

Sounds like you are a serious student! I like Silman's writing style which is extremely economical. For example, he will provide only the information relevant to each game and position and not try to blow you away with pages and pages of analysis from dozens of games, plucked off the internet, with the same position. He is what he is and his style reflects this: a teacher who wants to teach not an egomaniac seeking adulation.

Very good... I have always enjoyed his writing style. I really like how he separated the material into ratings difficulty. I tend to go through the material several times and then punch the positions into a chess engine and when I can beat a top level chess engines consistently on each position, I consider it learned. Needlessly it has taken me quite awhile to get to where I am right now :)

I purchased Dvoretsky's endgame manual as well... far above my skill level!... I am currently working my way through Silmans Endgame course and will tackle Dvoretskys tome after... perhaps then I will have figured out what the opposition is!

Susan Polgars - Chess Tactics for Champions. The last chess book I purchased and am very impressed :) Easy to read and work through.
