Review: 50 Ways to Win at Chess

For a few days, my review of Steve Giddins' excellent book 50 Ways to Win at Chess is posted at the ChessCafe homepage. The review begins:

This is an excellent follow-up to Giddins’ 50 Essential Chess Lessons from Gambit, published in 2006. It does not include “the essential lessons” notes at the end of each game, as in the earlier book, but it does continue Giddins’ easy writing style that emphasizes teaching major concepts with textual explanations rather than via lengthy mind-numbing variations. Giddins is a FIDE Master who understands the subtle elements that separate class players from master players.

The review is also permanently archived here.
