A Matter of Technique by Jacob Aagaard

In a survey of the most hated clichés in chess, the winner was: and the rest is a matter of technique. This book deals with one of the few things chessplayers hate even more – losing a winning position. If you have never lost a winning position, this is the chance for you to see how it is done. If you are not new to the misery of spoiling hours of hard work in a few minutes, A Matter of Technique will offer you the second-best happiness – the misfortune of others. But more importantly, underlying patterns of how and why we misplay winning positions are carefully investigated and explained, as well as how to avoid these mistakes in future.

Grandmaster Jacob Aagaard won the British Championship at his first and only attempt. He is the only author to have won the Boleslavsky Medal as well as the ACP, Guardian, ECF and ChessCafe Book of the Year awards. He trains grandmasters from four continents and has helped players win school tournaments, national titles, as well as international opens, the US Championship, the World Cup, the Candidates Tournament and Olympiad gold medals.
