Apr 15, Steven rated it really liked it Shelves: A good book demonstrating some principles of chess. Mar 01, Randy rated it it was amazing Shelves: This is a remarkable book.
It is easily accessible to any chess player who is past the phase where tactical methods are a mystery.
At that stage of development, what is needed is a way to understand how to create positions from which tactics could spring or where you can just win the endgame. I took a long time to read this book, building up a collection of 55 games in my database and entering every variation and comment along with my own notes.
This is the approach I would take for a semester This is a remarkable book. This is the approach I would take for a semester-long undergraduate course, and that is about how long it took me to finish.
I enjoyed every minute and think it was totally worth it. I have never really studied a chess book, and I think you could do worse than to start here.
First, it's only pages long, and the explanations are gold. In a few places, moves are suggested for one side or the other which are not as strong as engine moves, but this never changed the point of the lesson.
This is a big deal to me in an age where people constantly claim to find "mistakes" and then dismiss older chess books. This type of engine checking misses the point and makes it seem like the lessons are not correct.
This and many other books show that many times it doesn't matter what the engines say: if you can understand the ideas being taught, then the lesson is valuable.
The topics of Simple Chess are those of a classic strategy book Outposts, Weak Pawns, Open Files, Half-open Files, Color Complexes and Space , but Stean's point is that if you play with these ideas to build a better position, you won't have to solve super-hard problems and you won't have to find super-strong tactics, they will just come from the position: "Simple chess always requires flexibility of thought.
The opponent can always avert one form of weakness or disadvantage by accepting another somewhere else.
