    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

    The Development of Chess Style
    Catalog Code: B0235IS

    This is essentially a book on chess history, showing how different styles of chess play became popular and flourished and then faded in popularity, such as for example the Hyper-Modern Style of play that became ''All the Rage'' in the 1920s and 1930s.

    The Development of Chess Style

    Kings of Chess
    Championships of the Twentieth Century
    Catalog Code: B0057IS

    This is one of the great classics of chess literature. British Champion William Winter deeply annotates 50 games that were played in matches for the World Chess Championship, starting with the 1907 match between Lasker and Marshall and ending with the 1951 match between Botvinnk and Bronstein. Winter writes with authority about these famous games, because he was personally present when many of them were played.

    Kings of Chess

    The Bobby Fischer I Knew
    And Other Stories
    Catalog Code: B0059IS

    The Bobby Fischer I knew and other stories is hailed as an instant classic. This Damon-Runyan like work will be around well into the 21st Century. To inform future generations about such greats as Bobby Fischer and World Champion Garry Kasparov as well as the ''Guys and Dolls'' of the New York Chess scene during the fabled Golden Era of the 1930s and 1940s. In the introduction, five time U.S. Chess Champion writes that the authors capture ''some of the most raucous and colorful figures in 20th century chess'' with a ''Dickensian precision''.

    The Bobby Fischer I Knew

    Grandmaster Chess
    The Book of the Louis D. Statham Lone Pine Masters-Plus Tournament 1975
    Catalog Code: B0055IS

    Lone Pine 1975 was the first ever truly Grandmaster Swiss event. Today, with many grandmaster Swiss events taking place every year, such as the Aeroflot Open, the Reykjavik Open, and many others, not to mention the World Open, bringing together 22 grandmasters to play in a Swiss tournament does not seem that remarkable. Even the title, Grandmaster Chess, seems to be a bit hackneyed with so many grandmaster events being played today.

    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.

    White to Play and Win PLUS Simple Chess
    Catalog Code: B0022IS

    When ''White to Play and Win'' was first published, it created a great sensation because the author, Weaver W. Adams, claimed to be able to prove that White has a win by force from the very first move, against any defense. Although the author was never able to prove his central thesis, he did prove that these lines were lethal against the average tournament chess player.

    White to Play and Win PLUS Simple Chess

    The Middlegame - BOOK 2
    Dynamic and Subjective Features
    Catalog Code: B0204IS

    Max Euwe was World Chess Champion in the 1930s and he collaborated with International Master Kramer to write this great treatise on how to play chess middlegames. Book II of the series examines the initiative, the different types of attack on the king, the art of defense, maneuver and liquidation, and the common failings over the chessboard to which even great players are occasionally subject.
