the reassess your chess workbook - Silman
In this comprehensive workbook, International Chess Master Jeremy Silman tests a player's strengths and weaknesses with 131 problems that cover openings, tactical and positional middlegames, and endgames.
Unique among books that present problems and their solutions, but offer little actual instruction, The Reassess Your Chess Workbook takes the player through the processes of problem solving and analysis and provides advice and instruction that ultimately helps him discover the major flaws imbedded in his play.
Through this method, the player is led to an understanding of a thought system that will add hundreds of rating points to his chess strength.
This workbook may be utilized with or without Silman's earlier book How To Reassess Your Chess. It may be used in the problem/solution manner described above, or its section of solutions may be read as an instruction manual itself. However one chooses to read this book, it will surely prove a font of wisdom and insight for all students of the game.
