Product Details

Chess Secrets is a brand new 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. The chess world has been blessed with some wonderful strategists, innovators of the game with their instructive play and profound teachings. In The Giants of Strategy, Neil McDonald chooses his selection of the most prominent ones and highlights the major contributions they have made. He examines their differing approaches and styles, and from Nimzowitsch to Kramnik, how they followed in each other's footsteps. A careful study of this book will help you to understand and improve in one of the most crucial elements of the game.

  • It's a book rich in insights, and a book whose annotations consistently achieve the difficult: making the ideas and struggle of a game comprehensible and exciting. Such a valuable book also deserves the most far-reaching audience. Or, rather, the chess reading public deserves such a valuable book. David Kaufman - Chess Cafe
  • I would recommend this book very highly to players who feel confident of their tactics, but aren't certain how those possibilities come up. This book will best serve aspiring players who too often find themselves facing situations in which calculation simply will not achieve a positive result. NM Bill McGeary -
