What It Takes to Become a Chess Master Paperback


So you're a fairly decent chess player. You compete in tournaments, you play on the Internet.

But you would love to make that leap to become a chess master.

What do you need to know, how much do you have to practise, and how much of the success of the masters is simply a matter of innate talent, superior brainpower or just good luck?

This useful book, aimed at all chess players who aspire to become chess masters, shows you what the masters know and you don't.

Written by one of our biggest-selling and best-loved chess authors, in his trademark chatty, accessible but always informative style, this book is filled with practical exercises and test games that will reveal the secrets of how to join chess's elite ranks.
