    Book DescriptionWritten by a young Grand Master, this introduction to chess strategy is aimed primarily at players for whom a game plan is utterly enigmatic. By isolating the basic elements and illustrating them through a selection of Master and Grand Master games, Simple Chess breaks down the mystique of strategy into plain, easy-to-understand ideas. (Only a knowledge of basic chess terminology is assumed.) More than a lesson in fundamentals, it illustrates an increasingly prevalent style of play--a method that begins by slowly accumulating small, permanent advantages, saving the outright attack for later. Newly converted into the current algebraic notation, Simple Chess offers a strategic weapon for players at every level of expertise.

      Most chess books aim to guide and instruct by offering principles, rules, schemes and theories. Creative Chess, on the other hand, has a quite different and original approach. It firmly maintains that every chessplayer, whether amateur or master, is capable of creating something new in chess. After a discussion of the characteristics and processes of creativity, 10 central concepts, such as unusual positioning and functioning of pieces, alertness to subtle differences, absurd moves, and flexibility, are presented with a wealth of truly amazing examples to encourage the reader to broaden the horizons of his chess thinking.
