A follow-up to Neil McDonald's incredibly successful 'Chess: The Art of Logical Thinking', this insightful book takes a close look at some of the most outstanding games from the last 6 years, commenting on every single move as the game unfolds. This time, however, the emphasis is on planning, and how players plan their strategy many moves ahead. The author's detailed approach gives you a rare opportunity to really get to the nitty-gritty of what goes through grandmasters' minds as they play. To avoid unnecessary repetition, the opening moves of each game are discussed more lightly – real discussion begins around the 10th move, which is where the planning stage really kicks in.

With Weapons of Chess, National Master and highly acclaimed teacher Bruce Pandolfini brings us the most accessible and easy-to-use chess strategy book ever. Written for beginning and intermediate players, Weapons of Chess is the first encyclopedia of chess strategies that doesn't rely on the usual baffling chess notation. There are no symbolic chess moves, no charts or sequences in chess notation: every move is explained in words. Arranged alphabetically for easy use and based mainly on pawn formation, the incredibly detailed and thorough entries in this book talk a player through dozens of common strategic dilemmas, such as "doubled pawn," "bishops vs. knights," and "hanging pawn pair." Diagrams illustrate the terms, first showing the basic position and then strategically moving to more complicated versions of it. Players will learn how to formulate plans once they have reached a middlegame, enabling them to make wiser strategic decisions after the first few moves of the game. Designed for use as a ready reference during actual practice games, and usable without a chess board, Weapons of Chess is a unique and invaluable resource for any developing chess player.
