I don't really play chess, so I don't know why I enjoy reading books about chess strategy, but I do.

This book was ok. It stressed the London System for white and the ways that it can defeat different opening of black. In my opinion there weren't enough diagrams as he works through a number of past games. I know that real chess players can probably picture the board in their head even after 15-20 moves, but not me - I need a few more diagrams for each game that he played out, along with all the variations he discussed during each game.
