How to Get Better at Chess

By Larry Evans, Jeremy B. Silman, and Betty Roberts

I really liked the dialogue with various Grandmasters concerning the game of chess. Their opinions varied greatly, which I translated into the idea that there is much wiggle room in how to approach chess and serious study of the game. There was wry humor in much of the answers given by the Grandmasters. The games given to make examples of the GM’s strengths and weaknesses were very enlightening. In all, with proper application of study and practice, I feel that many attain mastery of chess and maybe even Grandmastery. Even though this is an older publication, I would recommend this book to anyone wishing to excel in the game of chess.
