I've read at least half a dozen chess books, and this one remains my favorite. I usually play better after studying a game or two from this book. Hopefully I play better after reading any chess book, but for some reason I've come to expect myself to play better after studying a game or two from this book in particular. Rubinstein's attacks are conducted so carefully because of his preference for positional play. I suspect it is easier to calculate tactics when one has as strong an understanding of positional play as Rubinstein had.
