I'm trying to improve my game by reading a chess book - mammoth book of chess (recommended by greenpawn) but it is really slow going -setting up positions on boards and following the moves one at a time. It's so much easier to follow game threads attached to forums like this.
Are there any online chess books that take advantage of this?
I don't mind paying..
I know I sound lazy but its taking forever to get through

You cannot buy it.
Playing over games on a screen is like listening to a piece of music
and then expecting to actually play the instrument you just heard.
Playing the moves over the board one at a time is the way you play Chess.
Mark the place you at and go and start on another section.
But do go back to look at what remains in that chapter you skipped.
There is a lot of essential knowledge packed in that book.
Don't look upon it as work - enjoy it.
Any bit you are stuck with or cannot fully grasp then post on here.
