This is a book about the strengths and weaknesses of each chess piece and also about recognising strong and weak squares and areas on the board. It's not a new theme but one which Marovic finds that most amateur players consistently under-estimate in their own games, preferring to incur serious weaknesses in the off-chance of an attack. Through a series of examples from the games of leading players the author shows how to recognise what is and what is not a weakness and how to use each piece most effectively.
His purpose is to make the reader aware of this topic and able to achieve greater clarity of thought in an actual game. Chapters include: Part 1 - Weak and Strong Squares, Strength and Weakness on Files and Diagonals, Weakness of the First and Second Ranks, Outposts, Static Weakness and Attack, Part 2 - The King, The Queen, The Rook, Minor Pieces.
