A collection of short 2-page lessons. Good if you don’t have large blocks of time available for reading. The author is not afraid to criticize commonly accepted chess principles – including principles set forth by legendary players. The lessons became increasingly more abstract as the book progressed from beginner topics to advanced topics. I got some benefit from the beginner and intermediate lessons, but not much from the advanced lessons.
