There is already so much literature about Magnus Carlsen. Why did the author add another book to it? Because he found the idea of ​​looking at the strategic play of a genius through the lens of the so-called 'model of four types of players' extremely interesting. And as a result, he actually succeeded in clearly highlighting both the outstanding strengths and the universality of the 16th World Champion.
But even if the reader is not necessarily interested in this approach, he can still see the book as an extremely useful 'textbook of strategy', so instructive are Magnus Carlsen's games. Because, in keeping with his style, he masters many strategically indispensable and effective methods (such as active prophylaxis, strategic pressure play, etc.) like no other.
To provide further information, the author has formulated numerous clear and meaningful rules of thumb on the various topics. However, he does not fail to point out that in chess it is not important to know this or that rule by heart, but that it is of crucial importance to train your intuition to recognize as accurately as possible when something is a rule and when it is an exception. And since Magnus Carlsen's skills can also be described as absolutely brilliant in this respect, it goes without saying that any reader who takes a closer look at Carlsen's games can learn a great deal about the finer points of chess from one of the best players of all time.
Each chapter is rounded off with topic-related tasks. And practical QR codes make it easier to play the game directly on your smartphone when you don't have a board to hand.
