En stor og imponerende bok som besvarer det klassiske spørsmålet: Hvordan bli god i sjakk? Her er både mye refleksjon, treningsråd med litteraturtips og praktiske sjakkeksempler. Glimrende også for sjakktrenere og studenter opp i mesterklassen.

På mange måter er dette blant annet en slik skikkelig "treningsguide" som mange har etterlyst! Her er mye tekst, men også glimrende sjakkeksempler fra en erfaren trenerkapasitet.

Se innholdsfortegnelsen lenger nede for å få et bedre inntrykk av hva denne boka dekker. Nivåmessig er den relevant for alle som har på plass det grunnleggende i sjakk - for eksempel Sjakkskolen 1, 2 og 3 og fortrinnsvis litt til - og deretter er motivert for å jobbe seg videre.

Forfatteren har trenererfaring fra klubbnivå til spillere som har blitt stormestere, og tankene og innholdet i boka forholder seg til denne brede erfaringen. Leseren bør være en spiller eller trener med ratingnivå i sjakk fra cirka 1300 og gjerne godt opp i mesterklassen.

Forlagets omtale:

Is chess a logical game? What constitutes an advantage in chess? How can we set problems and create psychologically difficult situations for the opponent? These are big questions, and Erik Kislik tackles them and others head-on in this thought-provoking, thoroughly modern, and original work.

He answers the first of those questions with a resounding ‘yes!’. His assessments focus on concrete points: pawn-structure, material imbalance and compensation. Even though the analytical proofs may be complex, he repeatedly shows that these elements are the keys to evaluating positions and forming plans.

As the trainer of players ranging from high-level grandmasters to average club-players, Kislik is very strong on providing practical guidance on topics such as how best to use chess software, choosing hardware, getting psychologically ready for a game and preparing for specific opponents. He is always willing to boldly state his views, even when they run contrary to conventional chess wisdom.

“I was excited by this book because of the way all of the ideas are intertwined and you get very concrete advice ... Everything is applicable and it is easy to see how it applies to the real world. ” – from the Foreword by GM Hjörvar Steinn Gretarsson.
