A great teacher and British Champion examines the main causes of the disaster in the game king.

Everyone loses chess games occasionally, but it happens too often due to moves that, in ourselves, we knew we had gaps. Why commit these sins on the board? Are the result of our misconceptions and how chess should be played? How can we recognize these warning signs?

In this entertaining and provocative book, Jonathan Rowson investigates, in his inimitable style, the main reasons why chess players astray, focusing on the following psychological setbacks:

     Thought (unnecessary or wrong)
     Relaxation (missed opportunities, lack of determination)
     Avidity (excessive concern about the outcome of the game)
     Materialism (insufficient attention to non-material factors)
     Selfishness (poor awareness opponent and his ideas)
     Perfectionism (time trouble trying too hard)
     Dispersion ("lose track" loss, poor concentration)

Jonathan Rowson became the third Grand Master of Scotland in 1999, just graduated from the University of Oxford. European youth was runner-up in 1997, Scottish champion in 1999 and winner of the Canadian Open in 2000 Rowson's first book, Understanding the Grünfeld has been highly praised, both for its quality and originality and freshness of approach.
