In his award-winning book Secrets of Modern Chess Strategy, John Watson broke new ground in outlining the developments in chess strategy since the time of Nimzovich. He explained how modern players have become more willing than their predecessors to favor dynamic rather than static considerations and have increasingly flouted the restrictive ''rules'' of earlier times. The outstanding results of Kasparov and the rise of a new generation of super-grandmasters testify to the effectiveness of this dynamic and free-thinking philosophy that has enriched modern chess. In this new work, Watson reinforces his theory and extends it into new areas, illustrating modern chess practice with numerous examples from imaginative players such as Kasparov, Kramnik, Anand, Ivanchuk and stormy innovators such as Zhirov and Morozevich.

Anyone who has enjoyed Secrets of Modern Chess Strategy will appreciate the detailed explanation of important concepts. However, Chess Strategy in Action can also be read without the previous work as an excellent collection of modern games with well-thought-out and insightful annotations.
