    what a wonderful read! If you are a bit of a couch potato chess player and enjoy reading reams of annotated games them this is one of the most enjoyable i have come across to date.

    You described me more accurately than I would like to admit! I'll have to check it out.

    honestly Paul, like you I do enjoy reading chess books and as you are aware there is a great difference among them, today two books came, Experts v the Sicilian and Understanding you chess, the latter is much more interesting than former, already i am on page thirty and there is no sign of stopping 🙂

    Rizzitano is underated as a player and a writer. I have that book and I enjoyed it.

    yes its a great read he is quite amusing as well as instructive. A chess book that at once instructs and entertains, how awesome, how novel! 🙂

    I'm happy for you, Mr. Robbie. Finally a chess book that you might actually read to the end.
