Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

One of the outstanding chess expositors of the 20th century presents the basis of analysis in a disarmingly simple way. Sticking to a few well-chosen examples, he shows how to avoid playing a hit-or-miss game from move to move and instead develop a general plan of action based on positional analysis. Includes 20 problems from master games.

I heard this is good. Great title and great cover! The upside down chess board, Ha. Znosko Borovsky is a good author with good things to say, even if his ideas are rather old and have beed refined upon. People who have just started to play chess should read Znosko Borovsky just once to get a historical feel for chess theory of that time. Also, it is full of good and practical advice. Then the reader should move on to the newer and more well known stuff. I remember reading somewhere that Alekhine respected and understood what Znosko Borovsky was trying to say, but never believed in this approach to chess.
