I was really impressed with how big this book was. Its two inches thick! I have just started getting into it. So far I'm really pleased with it and learning a lot. Not happy with that I didn't get my free gift. I would have really liked the quality chess scorebook but got confused at checkout and couldnt find the gift link. The salesman said that they would make it right next time I ordered if I called and reminded them. I will keep you updated on that.
The most amazing book for getting over the plateau in your chess abilities. Silman makes Grandmaster-level thinking processes accessible in a shockingly simple way.
