Learning to Think Through Your Chess Moves Instead of Memorizing Them!

What wins chess games? More than anything else, organized and efficient thinking. But chess thinking is specialized. Even Albert Einstein was a confessed chess duffer. It's not so much how smart you are as how smart your chess-thinking techniques are. The effects of memorizing moves, one of the most widespread attempts to improve, pale beside the results of learning how to think effectively in chess.

HOW TO THINK IN CHESS is the rare book that explains in clear terms the techniques chess masters use to find their moves. The authors, an international chess champion and a trained professional thinker, are uniquely qualified on the subject. They offer you both academic research and experience.

HOW TO THINK IN CHESS teaches you practical ways of thinking to win. You'll see how to assess your thought processes during play - and how to reorganize them in practics. You'll get exercises to increase your thinking skills. You'll see how to use elements of sports psychology in your preparation. (And don't be surprised if this book aids you in many other facets of your life as well!)
