    The Art of Sacrifice in Chess
    Catalog Code: B0331IS

    “Tactics,” said a famous chessmaster, “is 99% of chess.” It follows that the most effective way to increase your playing strength is to master the tactical aspect of chess. There is no surer or easier or more enjoyable way to acquire this vital chess skill than by studying Rudolf Spielmann's authoritative work on “the art of sacrifice in chess.”

    The Art of Sacrifice in Chess

    World Chess Championship Candidates Tournament Zurich 1953
    Catalog Code: B0285IS

    Whenever any grandmaster of chess is asked the question “Which chess book helped you the most” or “To what book do you most attribute your success”, the answer is almost always the same. All or almost all grandmasters say there is one book that stands above all others in leading to success over the board. The name of that book is: International Grandmasters Chess Tournament Zurich 1953 by David Bronstein, which is reprinted here under the more commonly used title of World Chess Championship Candidates Tournament Zurich 1953.

    Chess The Hard Way
    Catalog Code: B0258IS

    'Chess the Hard Way'' is the autobiography of Daniel Abraham Yanofsky, who was not only Canada's first chess grandmaster buit was Canada's only grandmaster until the modern era. His career is remarkable. He was from a remote Indian town in Central Canada where there were no chess masters. Almost invariably, strong chess players only develop in places where there are strong players.

    Chess The Hard Way

    An Invitation to Chess
    A Picture Guide to the Royal Game
    Catalog Code: B0025IS

    An Invitation to Chess is perhaps the most successful chess book ever written, with sales of over 100,000. It is a basic beginners book, starting with the moves of the pieces and rapidly advancing to more complex problems and examples.

    An Invitation to Chess

    The Blue Book And Encyclopedia of Chess
    With Introduction and Updates from 2008
    Catalog Code: B0065IS

    This book was originally published as The Official Blue Book and Encyclopedia of Chess. In reprinting this book, the word ''Official'' has been deleted because the official rules have since been published by FIDE. However, the rules are substantially the same, just the new rules are more complex and detailed. The author, Kenneth Harkness, was the inventor and developer of the chess rating system that is now used in every country of the world.

    Collection of Chess Studies by Troitzky
    Catalog Code: B0058IS

    Alexey Alexeyevich Troitzky (1866-1942) is considered to have been the greatest composer of chess endgame studies ever. To call him a genius is to trivialize his accomplishments, because there are many geniuses, but few can equal the output of Troitzky. In his lifetime, Troitzky composed more than one thousand chess endgame studies.
