Book Description

Simon Williams, one of Britain's most dynamic and aggressive chess-players, has selected his favourite attacking games from the modern era, and annotated them with an infectious zeal that will inspire and instruct. He takes us inside the decision-making process, explaining how each stage in an attacking concept is formed, and shows how top players spot the signs that indicate it is time to stake everything on an all-out assault. We also get insights into the role of intuition and calculation in both attack and defence. 

The players featured in this entertaining collection include Judit Polgar, Alexei Shirov, Veselin TopalovViswanathan Anand, Vasily Ivanchuk, Peter Svidler, Alexander Grishchuk and Magnus Carlsen.
