I prefer this book because there is just simply much more material than Reassess Your Chess. The workbook gives a synopsis of Reassess Your Chess in it's entirety at the starting, and I think that's good enough, then you just dive into the exercises. The solutions to the problems are quite thorough, containing a page or two of prose and variations to support it. Really what the workbook does is take a position from a game where there is a clear best move that's findable by positional reasoning, and then presents you with a decent fragment of the game annotated as the solution. It's quite nice, and I feel like the student has an opportunity to learn more from the workbook than from the original. It's kind of a cop out if someone is just showing you everything, but when it's presented in a problem / answer form, you get a chance to practice it yourself, which is important.
