About 50 Essential Chess Lessons - Giddins.
Steve Giddins has chosen 50 supremely instructive games -- some old, some new, including many that few readers will have seen before. He has annotated these games in detail from a modern perspective, explaining the useful lessons that can be learned from them, while avoiding the harmful dogma that characterized many older works of this type. Each game is followed by a recap of the main lessons to be learned. Giddins writes in a highly accessible down-to-earth style that appeals to club players seeking to improve their understanding of practical chess. His knowledge of Russian language chess literature has enabled him to find many excellent examples that have not appeared in previous western literature.
Author Steve Giddins is a FIDE Master from England who plays regularly in international events and has frequently contributed to the British Chess Magazine. He has gained a reputation as a writer who provides useful, no-nonsense advice on topics of genuine practical importance. This is his third book for Gambit. Others include: 101 Chess Opening Traps and How to Build Your Chess Opening Repertoire.
