Overcoming amateurish thinking

Have you been playing chess for a long time and are passionate about it? Or are you just taking your first steps on the chessboard? Then study this book thoroughly. As a beginner, it will save you unnecessary detours to a proper understanding of chess! As an experienced amateur, your view of the 64 squares may change fundamentally!

Unfortunately, many amateurs get caught up in incorrect thought patterns early on, which often stay with them for their entire chess career. Anyone who cannot find their way out of this dead end will only suffer bitter defeats and painful setbacks. In this case, randomly studying books or taking lessons is of little help. Instead, the course of strategic thinking must be set anew.

The author will guide you on the right path with his theory of "disturbances of equilibrium," which are few in number but surprisingly omnipresent. Guided by this theory, you will learn how to develop a plausible plan in the middle game and follow it consistently. Meanwhile, Silman remains a strict teacher who occasionally does not hold back with harsh criticism, but who never tires of recapitulating what his students may not be able to do right away. You will practice recognizing existing disturbances, the most important basis of conceptual chess, again and again until you gradually mature from an ordinary amateur or club player into a strong tournament player.

International Master Jeremy Silman is a world-class chess teacher, author, and successful player. He has won the American Open, the National Open, and the US Open. The original English-language edition of The Amateur's Mind is one of the best-selling chess books of our time.
