10 Great Ways to Get Better at Chess

10 Great Ways to Get Better at Chess (Everyman Chess)10 Great Ways to Get Better at Chess by Nigel Davies

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

An interesting book by GM Davies. The vast majority of the book is annotated games. There are 10 sections dealing with different ways for people to improve. In each section in addition to giving some advice, he has a case study and then shows some games from that person where they were having a certain problem, and some games after they had worked on or resolved those issues. Each section then ends with a set of key points about the subject it discussed. The section on pre-game rituals was interesting, as was his discussion of choosing events.

Edit: I should point out that the goodreads rating system isn't granular enough to do justice to this book (or many other books). I probably should have bumped it up to 4 because of that. I think it is a good book and provides good advice to a player looking to improve.
