John Shaw & Jacob Aagaard (Editors)
Learn to think and win like a Grandmaster
A multinational array of top Grandmasters annotate some of their own games against amateurs and explain the differences in thinking between professional and amateur chess players, and how the amateur can bridge the gap. Each author concludes with some tips on improvement for the amateur player.
It usually takes at least a decade of sustained effort for even the most talented player to reach the Grandmaster level and though this book cannot guarantee to make the reader a Grandmaster, it is certainly a healthy nudge in the right direction.
