Great Book!

I really like Silman's writing style and method. This workbook reads and functions much like a college textbook (if they had courses on such things, maybe they do); explanation and breakdown of concepts followed by exhaustive problems sets (quizzes) at the end of chapters. The questions are posed so that you have to really immerse yourself in the position at hand. These aren't the typical "choose the best move for black" type things, you're more apt to get something like "explain the benefits and drawbacks of the position shown for both white and black." That type of thing. You really have to dig deep but it's all relatable, understandable, and thoroughly engaging. Being new to Silman's work via this book, I will definitely be buying his others. As always, Chess House was speedy and accurate in completion of the order. Why bother with any other place?

The toughest impediment to improvement

I find plan formulation in the middle game inscrutable. This work book attacks that problem very well.
