Chess Secrets I Learned from the Masters
This book has taught two generations of chess players how to play forcefully and intelligently. Thousands of people, absolute novices at the game and skilled players alike, have profited from "Chess Strategy," with such famous Grandmasters as Paul Keres and Reuben Fine acclaiming it as the work which first showed them the way to successful chess.
