En ambisiøs og faglig fundert bok om praktisk psykologi i sjakk, av stormester Boris Gulko, som har en master i psykologi, sammen med sjakkeleven hans Joel Sneed som er professor i psykologi. Forordet er av Lev Alburt.

Forlagets egen omtale:

Analyzing the Chess Mind is an exploration of psychology in chess. Psychology affects the chess moves we make, as the authors entertainingly illustrate in expertly annotated examples, but our personal chess psychology is not fixed. We can improve our chess psychology, and the authors show how.

To write about chess psychology, the ideal authors would have world-class chess skills and advanced professional qualifications in psychology, so GM Boris Gulko and Dr Joel Sneed are perfect for the task of Analyzing the Chess Mind .

GM Boris Gulko is one of the few players to have a plus score against Garry Kasparov, and is also the only man to have been both Soviet and U.S. Chess Champion. He has a Master’s degree in Psychology from Moscow State University.

Dr. Joel R. Sneed is a Professor of Psychology at the City University of New York and a keen amateur chess player.

Fra forordet til Lev Alburt:

Gradually each of us came to the understanding that to achieve success in chess, it’s not enough to master the secrets of strategy and tactics, to study openings and endings, and to improve the technique of calculating variations. It is also necessary to study the mysteries of psychology, to gain knowledge of not only the peculiarities of the opponent’s style – to learn their strengths and weaknesses – but also to understand their human advantages and disadvantages. It is perhaps even more important to do the same work on oneself, with one’s own style and character. I’ve done this work as a chess practitioner, fighting in competitions at the highest level. I received the best opportunities to comprehend the subtleties of practical chess psychology, however, when I started to work as a trainer and chess teacher in 1991. I have outlined my findings in these areas in my books. Boris has achieved comprehension of psychology in a more direct way. He received a Master’s degree in psychology from Moscow State University and then worked for three years there as a research scientist.
