Book DescriptionA bishop is worth three pawns, the same as a knight. But what about two bishops? Are they worth the same as two knights or a bishop and a knight? The whole is greater than the sum of the parts. Frequently, the bishop pair is a sizable advantage in chess, often decisive when used correctly. This book will teach you how to not only master the secrets of the bishop pair, but how to combat it when you're on the other side of the chessboard.
