Three New Books on the Way

April 5th, 2022 31 comments

On May 18th we expect to publish three new books, from authors Mikhail Tal, Boris Gulko & Joel Sneed, and Gawain Jones. Excerpts are available for all three.

The Chess Alchemist by Mikhail Tal is a unique book containing 80 of Tal’s best games spanning four decades of his chess career, all annotated by the Magician himself. Normally at this point I explain who the author is, but… it’s Mikhail Tal – the celebrated World Champion whose writing was always entertaining.

An excerpt is available here.

Analyzing the Chess Mind by Gulko & Sneed delves into all aspects of chess psychology and offers practical advice for players of all levels, often using Gulko’s own games against elite players. An excerpt is available here.

The authors are ideally qualified for the topic: GM Boris Gulko is one of the few players to have a plus score against Garry Kasparov, and is also the only man to have been both Soviet and U.S. Champion. He also has a Master’s degree in Psychology from Moscow State University. Dr. Joel R. Sneed is a Professor of Psychology at the City University of New York.

King’s Indian 2 by Gawain Jones: the second and final part of a complete repertoire for Black by the world-class English GM. You would expect a King’s Indian repertoire to help the reader against 1.d4, but GM Gawain Jones went further – after reading his books you will also be ready for 1.c4 and 1.Nf3 and… everything except 1.e4.

An excerpt is available here.
