    PRE-ORDER - Modern Chess Formula
    The Powerful Impact of Engines
    Catalog Code: B0074TH

    This book is dedicated to chess, though I must confess it is not that same chess with which I immediately and eternally fell in love many, many years ago. There were plenty of wonderful moments, and no shortage of horrible disappointments associated with that version of the game in which I certainly considered myself a true professional.

    PRE-ORDER - The Grandmaster Mindset
    A First Course in Chess Improvement
    Catalog Code: B0072TH

    By going through the chapters you will get acquainted with my way of grandmaster- type thinking. I can assure you of one thing: there are better and weaker grandmasters, but you won’t find a GM who is playing without ideas or, let’s say, without his way of thinking! As you will find out, I am basically trying to detect the problem or goal of the position and then I am starting to scan factors which can lead to the solution. That process you will find in many examples in the book.
