How to Reassess Your Chess has long been considered a modern classic. This 4th edition 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.

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.

Jeremy Silman is an International Master and a world-class teacher, writer, and player who has won the American Open, the National Open, and the U.S. Open.

This is the one to get if you're too good to play with friends, but not good enough to challenge seasoned players. I've read a lot of chess books. This is probably the only one I can give absolute credit to immediately improving my game. Silman has written quite a few books, and still writes articles, but this one is his classic. It's a challenge, but it's the course and the teacher that intermediate players are searching for. He has a writing style that succeeds where most chess books fail, actually engaging the reader at the intermediate level with an energetic tone that rarely leaves a move unexplained. The strategic ideas he chooses to illustrate pick up right at the point where the casual player is separated from the club player. If you like this book, look up his endgame book, and the 'workbook' that is a sort of extension to this one.
