What It Takes To Become A Grandmaster by Andrew Soltis
WARNING: May Contain Small Parts.

Even an average chess player can find the same moves as a Grandmaster as much as 75 percent of the time—but only the Grandmaster can find that other 25 percent. Packed with tips, tricks, and practical exercises, this book identifies the kinds of moves and techniques that account for that difference. It covers such topics as: Mysterious rook pawn moves, Tacking, Piece Nullification, “King Feeling,” and much more. Written by one of our best-loved chess authors in his trademark chatty, accessible but always informative style, What It Takes to Become a Grandmaster will reveal the secrets of how to join chess's elite ranks.

International Grandmaster Andrew Soltis is a very popular chess writer and former chess correspondent for the New York Post. He is the author of many books including The Wisest Things Ever Said About ChessTranspo Tricks in Chess, and How to Choose a Chess Move.
