Forlagets egen omtale

Improve Your Chess Now is a modern chess classic and one of the most inspiring chess improvement manuals. Adult improvers frequently name this book as one of their primary sources in the popular Perpetual Chess Podcast of Ben Johnson.

The author is an American grandmaster now living in Norway. With infectious enthusiasm, Tisdall covers a wide range of topics, including visualization and calculation, pattern recognition, the psychological aspects of chess, the art of defence and the wisdom of blindfold chess – all still relevant more than 25 years later.

The 1997 classic is reprinted with a modern design and a new foreword by the author.

Jonathan Tisdall (1958 in Buffalo, New York) is an American-Norwegian Grandmaster and experienced international journalist, covering many World Championship matches, and is a regular contributor to New In Chess magazine.
