How to Reassess Your Chess has long been considered a modern classic. Now, this fourth and final edition completely rewritten and featuring all new examples takes Silmans groundbreaking concept of imbalances to a whole new level. Designed for players in the 1400 to 2100 rating range and for teachers looking for a ready-made chess curriculum, the author shares a mind-expanding journey that takes the reader through imbalance-basics, ensures that every detail of all the imbalances are mastered, and leaves the player/lover of chess with something he always wanted but never believed he could achieve: a master-level positional foundation. A section on practical chess psychology (titled Psychological Meanderings) presents never-before-published ideas on psychological processes that hinder players of all levels, and gives easy-to-follow advice and techniques that will help anyone overcome these ubiquitous mental/emotional failings. Hundreds of games brought to life by instruction-rich prose, and stories that offer humor while highlighting various lessons, vividly illustrate all the books topics in a manner thats both personal and fun. If the positional masterpieces of the chess legends have always been a mystery to you, if chess strategy has always been an unsolvable enigma, if you find yourself a positional pawn rather than a positional master, then How to Reassess Your Chess, 4th edition will prove to be a life-changing experience.… (més)

This is a great book, but not one that you should read, this is a book that should be studied. Many of the ideas are in algebraic chess notation, and unless you are particularly good at visualizing the board, you should probably have one handy. Personally, I suck at visualization of the board, but I digress.

Silman has split this particular edition that I have into sixteen parts, each of which is thematically connected. Most of these parts are further subdivided into chapters. For instance, the first part is all about endgames. The first chapter talks about the King, the idea of Opposition and Outflanking. The second chapter of the first part is about King and Pawn endgames and the third chapter of the first part is about King and Rook endgames. It isn't exhaustive by any means, but it does cover the basics.

As I said, each part covers a theme. The first part covers endgames, the second part covers Silman's Thinking Technique and the list of Imbalances, the third covers Calculation and Combinations, the Fourth covers Minor Pieces in the middle game and so on. The fifteenth part covers solutions to problems in the book and the Sixteenth is a Recommended Reading List.

Since this is a book that must be studied if you hope for improvement, it isn't something that you read cover to cover mindlessly. It would probably be best to have some kind of board handy so you can play through the games, since all of the possible lines that are mentioned get confusing for me. It has scenarios from actual games and attempts to peer into the mind of the master at crucial points, so it is also helpful in that regard. ( )

I decided to give Silman a second chance, largely because of this book's rep. It would be great if it had been written by any even slightly less annoying. Try to read it while ignoring the text entirely. You'll hate yourself less for having bought it. ( )
