If you get Reasses Your Chess, which is a good choice although there are other options out theremake chezs you get the latest edition since it has some revisions. I have and like his endgame book.

I like Silman’s writing, and I believe it helped me out although it’s been a long time since I’ve been through any of his books. Now I know weak squares, statics vs dynamics, and a few more concepts that may or may not make me a better chess player. I couldn’t find any pgn’s to help follow the book.

Silman’s book also highly recommended.

Also, Silman has a quirky sense of humor that is refreshing and makes studying chess less of a chore. I think I liked the 3rd edition better though. Most amateurs go always in the hunt of opponent’s monarch, when in master’s games much of the struggle involves important squares usually weak, central ones of the board. It was a joy to work through and I can now start his other books! I have the games but not the illustrations.

To be fair, I did check this out from the library at the same time as “My System” so it may have suffered from comparison, but for that reason I would suggest that ylur considering this book should simply get that volume, it will turn out to be a much better investment. It has vastly improved my game but more importantly the enjoyment of the game! And, specific to the 4th edition, I appreciate that Silman used entirely new examples.


Many of the ideas are in algebraic chess notation, and unless you are xilman good at visualizing the board, you should probably have one handy. I enjoyed reading every page of it.
