I have several of Jeremy Silman's books and have found each of the to be well organized and clearly written.

In my prior experience, chess books fell into one of two categories; those designed for beginners (sub 1000s), focusing on the bare basics and those designed for experts/masters (2000+). For the rest of us, Silman's books come as a breath of fresh air. Unlike the snobby and terse efforts (by grand masters for experts and masters) that preface complex variations with "Clearly" (when it is n

This is a pretty awesome book. One of the best out there.

The author is great at looking at typical amateur mistakes and helping those people address the reasons why they are making those mistakes.

That seems be an awesome formula for helping players improve. Why aren't more books like that?!?!

This is definitely a book all amateur chess players should have.

This is my second book by Jeremy Silman (first one was How to Reassess your Chess) and this book was just as amazing! More problems in each area of the game and just filled with great games and amazing annotations of games! It absolutely has increased my chess rating but also increased my confidence and enjoyment of the game too! Love this author and ready to start "The Amateur's Mind" tomorrow!

Overall the problems have a really good level of difficulty and sometimes are qui

Silman's books all have a fabulous layout which makes what can be a tedious and boring subject more bearable. I especially like this book as a crash course into the various imbalances within a game of chess. Silman breaks each imbalance down into very adaptable rule sets any novice player can immediately use.

A little too advanced for me. I couldn't understand the rationale behind some of the decisions that were too obvious for him to explain.
