Black is hunting the enemy king and - in practical play - this gives him a psychological edge.

      Dynamic Chess Strategy
      Expanded and Updated
      Catalog Code: B0095NIC

      In the battle of chess ideas, the publication in 1991 of Dynamic Chess Strategy was a defining moment. Before Mihai Suba's exceptional book, chess writers had neglected one of the most important factors of a chess position: its dynamic potential. Suba demonstrated that the traditional concept of improving the position was often static and irrelevant, and that classical strategy, if applied dogmatically, can prevent you from finding the right plan and its subsequent moves.

      An Account of the Lessing Rosenwald Tournament - NY 1954-1955

It is nicely laid out and designed and is easy to read. In his famous "My 60 Memorable Games" Fischer later collaborated with Evans, who served as his second during his rise to the world championship and became one of America's best-selling chess authors with over 20 books to his credit.
