New Art of Defence in Chess : chess defence tactics classic Paperback


Most chess games are not won - they are lost. Many instructional chess books tell you how to improve a position when it is already (or may be) favourable.

This book offers help when you definitely do not have the advantage. Every chess player needs a sound arsenal of defensive techniques.

This book covers them all - counterplay, when to accept sacrifices, how to anticipate short- and long-term threats, and how to minimise losses.

It also helps you create a strong underlying psychological framework for defensive technique - it teaches you how to stay cool under fire, how to stonewall and how to exploit your opponent's weaknesses.
