“Yusupov series of books (Build up your chess, Boost your chess, Chess Evolution) for players in 1000-2200 level approx. is good recommendation.”
GM Ramesh, probably the best trainer in the world. Trainer of Praggnanandhaa, Aravind and many other promising young Indians.
“The Build Up Your Chess series won the 2009 Boleslavsky Medal from FIDE as the best instructional chess books in which the instructional values were shown to be remarkable. Placing second and third in the voting were books from Garry Kasparov and Mark Dvoretsky. The Boost Your Chess series continues this successful format and deserves to win a spot on your bookshelf.”
