two new chess books now available
"The Chess Gospel According To John"by CJS Purdy appears to be an excellent choice.
It covers many areas such as...how to advance in chess,a system to reduce errors,methods of thinking,double threats,why learning openings is not going to necessarily make you a better player and more.It covers all areas of the game from start to finish.
The other new book I would recommend is "Mastering Positional Chess" by Daniel Naroditsky.
This book is written by a 14 year old,who is the youngest published author in chess history!
It appears to be written in very easy to understand explanations.Some of the quoted comments go as follows...."exceptionally instructive,full of practical advise to get better,how to improve your positional understanding though illustrative examples,one of the best books ever written on positional chess".
Areas covered for example are:Prophyaxis,defense in worse positions,building and breaking fortresses,positional sacrifice,paralysis in the middlegame and manuvering.
So,my advice to many players still in need of learning and understanding the positional/tactical way to stimulate your brains way of thinking,these 2 books appear to be an excellent choice.
Just do a search engine on the books or you can easily obtain them through the USCF link here on GK.I do not have these books as of yet,but several players at my chess club have obtained them and claim that they are both excellent.
