Reaction to Positional Decision Making in Chess:

“The most interesting chess book I have read in the last quarter-century.” Mikhail Shereshevsky in The Shereshevsky Method

“Gelfand is very good – and very honest – at explaining which decisions he could calculate and which decisions he needed to take on the basis of judgment, and how he did that... It adds up to the type of book I love... I think this book has masses to teach any strength of player.” GM Matthew Sadler, New in Chess

“The most useful decision-making chess guide I have ever read.” GM David Smerdon

“A revelation.” GM Lubomir Kavalek

“Gelfand has given us a superlative book... This might well be the book of the year, and serious students of modern chess practice should not miss out on its lessons.” John Hartmann, Chess Life
