Product Description

What separates the best chess players from the rest? What gives them the edge over their rivals? Chess legend Vladimir Kramnik believes it's their fighting skills and the ability to continuously find ways to keep a game alive. Colin Crouch agrees, and is fascinated that the world's strongest players seem almost unbeatable, even when games appear sharp and double-edged. In this book Crouch examines the tremendous fighting qualities of today's top grandmasters. Analyzing key games from 2012, Crouch demonstrates how they give nothing away to opponents but are always alert to punish any slight errors, and crucially, how we can apply these lessons to help us in our own games.

Move by Move provides an ideal platform to study chess. By continually challenging the reader to answer probing questions throughout the book, the Move by Move format greatly encourages the learning and practicing of vital skills just as much as the traditional assimilation of knowledge. Carefully selected questions and answers are designed to keep you actively involved and allow you to monitor your progress as you learn. This is an excellent way to improve your chess skills and knowledge.

  • Learn from the world's best chess players
  • Important ideas absorbed by continued practice
  • Utilizes an ideal approach to chess study

Editorial Reviews

In essence, this is a ‘How Good is Your Chess?’ kind of book, and one of the best of its type, not least because Colin Crouch is an astute and able guide to the manifold intricacies to be found in these games, and an engaging companion overall.  An essential read for ambitious players who are keen to improve.

- Manchester Chess Federation

 

This is the first book I have read by Colin Crouch and I am impressed by his writing style...I would highly recommend this work to those interested in the thoughts and play of the world’s best.  I will be buying more books by Colin Crouch in the future.
