    'New Ideas in Chess' by GM Larry Evans (1994) is an excellent
    manual for beginners and intermediate players: he covers the five
    most important elements in chessplay: Space; Time; Force; Pawn
    Structure and King Safety. ~DMD

    "New Ideas in Chess" is one of my all-time favorite books! Evans won the U. S. Championship several times and is an excellent writer. His column was the first one I always read when the latest issue of Chess Life would come in the mail.

    eh, the title seems like a title for advanced players, not for beginners and intermediate...
    I would be happy to master "The Classical Ideas in Chess"

    I would say the book would be very helpful for anyone rated in the 1200 to 1600 range (and maybe even higher).
