“The best three chess books: The brilliant Grandmaster Preparation series (Strategic Play, Positional Play and Calculation), which I would warmly recommend to anyone wanting to reach the next step with their chess.”
James Adair, CHESS Magazine
“In any case it is fun to work with this book. The clear understandable examples and positions will stick in your mind. Explanations are at a high level with Aagaard still managing to keep his feet on the ground.
For me, a really great workbook that leaves no wish unfulfilled!”
“Grandmaster Jacob Aagaard digs in this beautifully made hardcover book into the world of calculation, prophylaxis, pattern recognition, positional analyses and more. This all is well explained by means of excellent analyses, game clippings, complete games and exercises…
Conclusion: One of those book that help you to become a player of master strength!”
