In his celebrated book The Secrets of Modern Strategy in Chess, John Watson opened new horizons in describing the evolution of chess strategy since Nimzovich's time.
The author explained that current players are more inclined than their predecessors to give priority to dynamic factors over static, and how they have progressively transcended the limited "rules" that have conditioned the game in earlier times.
The dominant results of Gari Kasparov and the emergence of a new generation of super-great masters testify to the effectiveness of this dynamic and broad-minded philosophy, which has enriched modern chess.
In this new work, Watson develops his theory and extends it with the study of new areas. Thus, it illustrates the modern practice of chess with numerous examples of imaginative players like Kasparov, Kramnik, Anand, Ivanchuk, and impetuous innovators like Shirov and Morozevich.
Those who have enjoyed the secrets of modern strategy in chess will enthusiastically receive this book, which clarifies important concepts.
Chess strategy in action can also be read as an independent book, while it contains an outstanding collection of modern games, commented on with deep and revealing reflections.
