En trenings- og lærebok med mye variert innhold, gjerne for spillere med ratingnivå cirka 1000 - 1900. Innfallsvinkelen handler om hva du kan gjøre uten en trener, uten at dette poenget er en rød tråd gjennom boka.

Forfatterene er originalt nok en mor og sønn, Victoria Doknjas og sønnen John som har blitt FIDE-mester. Boka handler i praksis mest om åpningsspillet og sluttspillet, og blant annet om verdien av å analysere egne partier selv.

Forlagets egen omtale

Are you a parent of a junior chess player who feels that because you don’t know how to play chess, you can’t help your child? Or are you an adult or junior chess player who has taken private chess lessons for years, but feels you haven’t been progressing?

In both cases, there can be a lot of reliance on a chess coach who has been given free rein with lesson content and direction. They probably have some sort of plan but it is likely to be a plan used for all their students. This is not ideal. More important is a well-thought out, individualized plan, that focuses on a specific player’s unique strengths and weaknesses. Formulating such a plan is crucial for making improvements.

Victoria Doknjas and her son John Doknjas are an ideal writing partnership to tackle this topic. John is a FIDE Master who has already established himself as an excellent and highly-respected author who understands the improvement process very well. Victoria has over a decade of experience navigating the competitive chess arena with her three master-level sons, including also running her own chess academy. Together they offer a unique and informative insight to those wanting to get more out of their chess studies, as well as presenting practical advice in areas including:

  • Identifying important goals and how to work towards them.
  • Understanding how to objectively analyse your games.
  • Maximising the efficiency of software and engines for learning.

Reading this book can broaden your horizons in the essential areas of chess study, and ideally let you better evaluate what your chess coach is teaching you. And if you don’t have a chess coach, this book will provide you with an excellent foundation for serious chess study.
