Publisher's Comments

One false move, and you're dead -- as in other games, chess is fraught with situations in which the wrong reaction leads directly to defeat. However, unlike most other games, chess's most dangerous moments are often subtle and easily overlooked. This volume offers guidance to players at every level on how to develop an early warning system.
Its advice is structured around three main sources: outside (the opponent); inside (the player's own thought process); and the stimulus itself (the board position). The author, an Israeli psychologist and FIDE Master, shows players how to identify actual and potential hazards and how detecting them can be used not only to bolster defense but also as an attack strategy.
Includes 24 black-and-white figures.
