Improve Your Vision, Sharpen Your Talons, Forget Your Fear

Cyrus Lakdawala does something no other chess writer has done before: he makes you reflect deeply about your style of play and its consequences. After reading Chess for Hawks you will be a stronger player because you have mastered an essential but neglected skill: you will know how to obey the position's requirements instead of your natural inclination.
