Den første av to bøker der IM Zlatanovic presenterer de grunnleggende strategiske konseptene i sjakk, gjennom instruktive eksempler, uten mange varianter. Denne store første boka benytter 259 ulike partieksempler.

En lærerik om "evige" strategiske sannheter i sjakkspillet. Egnet for spillere fra cirka 1300 i rating og langt oppover. Det er ikke lagt opp som en treningsbok, men start gjerne med å selv bedømme situasjonen i det første diagrammet i hvert eksempel!

Fra forfatterens forord:

How to learn strategy? Can it be learned? It can be, of course. And these volumes are the perfect guide to learn (or, more precisely, to learn to understand) strategy.

My idea is to throw light on all the strategic concepts in these volumes. To help you navigate more simply, I have divided all the material into two volumes. This first one is exploring the elements of strategy, explaining typical and essential principles in detail. The second one is about pawn structures. Of course, structures themselves actually mean nothing without recognizing patterns and principles from the elements (because pawn structures are used to determine the values of pieces, for instance). That is why volume two can be considered as an advanced level of strategy. Generally, examples will be based on material adopted from volume one and upgraded.

Forord av stormester Dragan Solak:

I have known Boroljub since the childhood. When I think of him, the first word that comes to my mind is PASSION. Be it chess or football, Dunst Opening or Nimzovich Defense, he always seemed to be able to reach hights due to his devotion and dedication to whatever he was currently busy with. It doesn’t surprise that this finally results in encyclopedic knowledge of whatever area he chooses to focus on. I will mention an interesting episode.

At some point in his life, Boroljub developed an affection for game shows. It didn’t take too long before he became a TV celebrity, giving correct answers to incredibly difficult questions in super diverse areas. I vividly remember almost falling off my chair while I was watching him in “Who Wants to Be a Millionaire“, thinking, how can this guy know EVERYTHING?? Quiz producers simple stop inviting him under the threat of bancrupcy! When he started teaching, he continued doing it with the same enthusiasm. This sentiment can be felt throughout the book, and together with great material, it gives the reader that little extra something, that can’t be described by words, but only felt.

I really hope that you will enjoy the book, and I recommend you to read through the chapter about the Bad Pieces attentively, it will bring you quite a few points in the future!
