"The book also contains tons of original tests and studies that will make your brain work. I personally appreciated ”The Luther’s test” which is a small test with 21 positions for players rated 2200-2400, seriously? These exercises are tricky!
Luther’s book is original and deals with topics that you don’t normally read about in chess publications.
IM Renier Castellanos (full review)
"It is a chess book that many can learn from, both about chess technically and in terms of knowledge of the world of chess grandmasters. And incidentally, we learn a few things about life in the former East Germany, where of course it was not all doom and gloom. There is much about the life of top chess players and any youthful talent planning to become professional should read this."
