Product Details

Chess Secrets is a series of books which uncover the mysteries of the most important aspects of chess: strategy, attack, opening play and gambits, classical play, endgames and preparation. In each book the author studies a number of great players from chess history who have excelled in a particular field of the game and who have undeniably influenced those who have followed.

In The Giants of Power Play, Neil McDonald selects five players who have excelled in the field of 'power play' - the art of putting opponents under constant pressure. The methods of doing so are numerous, including gaining rapid development in return for material to build up an initiative, preparing powerful opening ideas in advance, or even developing completely new opening systems. McDonald examines the contributions made by each player, their differences in approach and style, and from Morphy to Topalov, how they followed in each other's footsteps. A study of this book will help you to enhance your skills in one of the most crucial elements of the game.

Reviews
  • Chess Secrets: The Giants of Power Play ably merits an enthusiastic thumbs-up. You only have to look at the quintet of players on show to know that you are going to be royally entertained, and Neil McDonald's writing is engaging and accessible yet has real substance too. One neat, snazzy characteristic he has, as Master of Ceremonies: all the points he makes in the text are validated and complemented by the selected games. Manchester Chess Federation
  • another impressive work by Neil McDonald, brimming with all of his love and enthusiasm for the game. Paul Kane - Jeremysilman.com/compulsivereader.com
  • GM Neil McDonald never before wrote a book that I didn't like, and his new Everyman work "The Giants of Power Play" is no exception, as I really love it! Paul Motwani - The Scotsman
