    By Question and Answer
    Catalog Code: B0292IS

    The master chess teacher Fred Reinfeld takes 16 great and instructivre master games This book is different from most others in that here Fred Reinfeld adopts a variety of the Socratic method. Instead of annotating the games by telling what each player did right or wrong, he asks you to answer the questions that arose in each game. After almost every move past the opening, Reinfeld asks you the reader the reasons for the move and often he asks you to provide the best response to the move.
