Play better by understanding imbalances

Chess with a New Twist, the German translation of the fourth and completely revised edition of Silman's legendary ''How to Reassess Your Chess'', is a modern classic in which Silman takes his groundbreaking concept of imbalances to a whole new level.

The book is aimed at players with a rating between 1400 and 2100 and at trainers who are looking for an immediately applicable chess course.

In this book, the author takes the reader on a journey that expands thinking, explains the basics of imbalances, ensures that every detail of imbalances is understood, and thereby gives the player/chess lover something he has always dreamed of but always thought unattainable: a master-level positional understanding.

A section on practical chess psychology (entitled 'Psychological Excursions') presents never-before-published ideas about psychological processes that hinder players of all levels from flourishing, and reveals easily implementable tips and techniques to help anyone overcome these common mental/psychological weaknesses.

Hundreds of games brought to life by vivid explanations and stories that are humorous and educational explain the book's themes in a personal and entertaining way.

If the positional masterpieces of chess legends have always remained incomprehensible to you and chess strategy has always been a closed book for you and you believe that you are a pawn and not a master in positional play, then chess with a new impetus can change your life.

John Watson, author of over 30 chess books:
"The Rolls Royce of chess textbooks – no other book has made so many chess players better."

Joel Benjamin, three-time US champion and chess author:
"This book is a must-read for anyone who really wants to improve."
