Taming Wild Chess Openings
Good, Bad, and Ugly
by John Watson & Eric Schiller
Taming Wild Chess Openings is an original e+ book. This entertaining and useful work addresses several of the average chessplayer’s needs. It provides solutions to scores of rarely-played openings, as well as tricky openings that present difficult problems. In addition, the authors present schemes for unbalancing the game and playing for advantage versus sound but passive openings which can be irritating to play against. The reader is also encouraged to look into some unusual openings as a way to get original and interesting play in over-the-board contests.
by Aron Nimzowitsch
Translated by Robert Sherwood
This classic of positional play has been newly translated by Bob Sherwood to better represent the full human experience and the revolutionary thinking found in Nimzowitsch's original German text. Material censored or otherwise omitted from the original version has been restored and carefully rendered to reveal Nimzowitsch's deep-level response to the self-satisfied and narrow chess orthodoxy of his day. My System offers positional insights and guidelines that have stimulated serious chess players ever since it first appeared in the 1920's.
