Here, on New Year’s eve, I have finally uploaded Attacking Manual 2 to the printer. It will thus hopefully be ready for shipping from our warehouse from the 20th of January. I have uploaded the first 15 of the 464 pages as an excerpt. I will put it on the main site and so on, when I return to the office on the 5th. You can find the excerpt here.

As Boris is not a fluent English speaker, time is pressing on GM John Shaw to make it all sound beautiful. The 27th January is still possible, but it might be sharp.

Yusupov in action

We enjoy hearing from chessplayers who study our books and feel the benefit. The photo below shows players from the Sachovy Klub Lipa in a pub in the Czech Republic working hard on Artur Yusupov’s Build up your Chess 2. At least I assume they are working hard.
