Originally posted by 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.
'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

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"
