En fascinerende ny bok med naturlig smart navn. Stormester Thomas Luther deler raust av erfaringer som både spiller og trener, med mye verdifullt stoff om utvikling i sjakk, helt opp til kronspørsmålet hvordan bli stormester.

En bok for både spillere og trenere, og i praksis med tanke på ratingnivåer fra cirka 14-1500 og videre oppover. Det gis i dette naturlig også mye konkret sjakkstoff av høy kvalitet, og blant annet atskillig om Luthers favorittvarianter som for eksempel Fransk-varianten 1 e4 e6 2 d4 d5 3 Sd2 c5 4 exd5 Dxd5.

Bab Wilders, Nederlands Dagblad: "It is a chess book that many can learn from, both about chess technically and in terms of knowledge of the world of chess grandmasters. And incidentally, we learn a few things about life in the former East Germany, where of course it was not all doom and gloom. There is much about the life of top chess players and any youthful talent planning to become professional should read this."
