Denne boka har ambisjonen å være et verktøy for å strukterere leserens tanker under sjakkpartier. De to hoveddelene i boka er konsepter for tenking og posisjonelle konsepter. Det er mange spennende kapitler, og forfatteren bygger mye på egen erfaring både som spiller og trener.

Kislik bruker flest eksempler fra egne partier. Nest flest eksempler er det med Magnus Carlsen.

Dette er ingen enkel bok. Teksten er interessant for de fleste, men sjakkeksemplene er mest for spillere med ratingnivå fra cirka 15-1600 og oppover.

Forlaget egen omtale:

Chess-players understand that it is vital to play logically, but often lack the methods needed to do so. In this book, renowned trainer Erik Kislik presents a wide range of specific concepts that will help them succeed. These include positional techniques, thinking methods, and modes of play to adopt when either better or worse.

Just the list of chapter titles shows how original Kislik’s presentation is. They include:

Painfully Slow Moves
Focal Points
Reciprocal Logic
Fighting against Centralized Pieces
When Playing a Bad Move Wins a Good Game
A Chronically Weak King

Throughout, the discussion is illustrated by a mass of examples from both recent elite chess and the play of Kislik and his students, showing how his themes cut across all levels of chess. After the book’s two main sections – Thinking Concepts and Positional Concepts – comes a section of exercises, again with a strikingly original theme: our task is simply to assess each position.

Erik Kislik is an International Master originally from California who lives in Budapest. He is an expert in computer chess and one of the most in-demand chess trainers on ICC. He has coached many grandmasters and assisted a number of elite players with their opening preparation. His previous book for Gambit, Applying Logic in Chess, has been widely praised.
