4.0 von 5 Sternen It's even good for lousy players 27. Juli 2000
Most the people who've reviewed this book seem to be pretty good players. I'm not -- based on the ratings I got on Chessmaster and Yahoo Chess, I was about an 1100 rated player. Since I play most of my chess games against a friend just for fun, this was never a concern for me... until my friend got better than me, and I started losing consistently.
Knowing that my knowledge of the game was lousy, I started looking for a good book to read, but had lots of problems finding one. It seemed to me that most books either assumed that the player was far more advanced than I was (e.g., opening repertoire books) or far less advanced (e.g., "How to Play Chess" type books). Finding something for the experienced, yet still pathetic, player was a challenge.
Fortunately, Silman fits the bill nicely. One of my main problems in games was never knowing what to do in the middle; often, I was reduced to making random, time-killing moves. And the books I did glance at were no help: "Make a plan," they intoned. Yeah, great advice, but how?
Silman explains how. He tells how to recognize imbalances in the game, and what to do to exploit those imbalances. This advice has proved invaluable to me. Now, I no longer make random moves; all of my moves have a purpose. Many of them still turn out to be deeply stupid moves, of course, but at least they're stupid moves with a purpose. I haven't even finished reading the book yet, but already my ranking on Yahoo has jumped to about 1300, and I'm able to win against my friend again. And I know, with a deep certainty, that I'm not using Silman's advice to the fullest -- a better player than I am could certainly pick up more from this book than I have.

5.0 von 5 Sternen great for beginners to intermediate players 19. April 2000
This book focuses on the middle game -- that time when many beginners ask themselves "now what? Do I attack, develop pieces for development's sake, or simply wait for my opponent to make a mistake?" This book teaches you how to analyze any position, determine the strengths and weaknesses of your position and, more importantly, those of your opponent. The book proceeds to discuss methods of attacking weaknesses and creating even more.
This book gave me the ability to think through a game and make a plan instead of plodding along hoping to stumble across a clever or unexpected combination.
It is written in very understandable English. I highly recommend this game to those who are seeking to advance beyond the beginning intermediate stage.
Even better, Silman includes a bibliography and brief description of the chess books he believes will be the most helpful to develop certain parts of the game (e.g. openings, endgames, pawn structure etc.). With so many chess books on the market, it's nice to have a professional's opinion on the one's best suited to help someone of my ability.

This book was extremely helpful in improving my chess game. I like the vehement style of writing that Jeremy uses, ("When I say you must, I mean you must."). I see many of my fellow reviewers lambast Jeremy for his Typos (and they should be corrected in a new edition [with two indices of players and openings, might I add]), but it is very helpful and useful that he expressed clarity and freshness in explaining the most important parts of the book. (There are a lot of dry chess readings througout history and I'm glad Jeremy, Bruce Pandolfini and Lev Alburt are aware to keep things fresh and lively). I was ready to tout this book as the best right along with some of my five-star yeilding cohorts until I follwed through with Jeremy's suggestion and read "The ART of the Middlegame" by Paul Keres and Alexander Kotov. This old book is MUCH MORE thorough than "How to Reassess Your Chess" in describing 1) planning in particular openings, 2)attacking in relation to the board's castled positions and 3)central pawn topography. But, it is an excellent idea to tie thoughts from these two books together; Jeremy's book does cover MANY OTHER planning issues that aren't in "The ART of the Middlegame." Bottom line: Ingest Jeremy's book and improve greatly. But, Ingest it along with "The ART of the Middlegame" and tell the world of chess to be very afraid of you. (Here's a tip... (read my Amazon review of Bruce Pandolfini's "Power Mates"). My review WILL give you some Ideas!

MY BACKGROUND: Rated high B (1760 -- performance rating in last 4 tournaments). I've read 14 books since I last played in a tournament, and am probably around "Expert" ("2100"). I also coach a high school chess team.
The List of 51 books for continued study at the end will rudder you to "Master." For beginner to "B," the book will probably add 300 to 400 points. An "A" player or "Expert" will appreciate the nuances of knight and rook play, and the suggested reading list at the end. Even a master might appreciate "spying" on another master's suggested reading for the middle game and end game play.
The book in general is a good overview, with insights better than other positional books. Don't be turned off by the phrase "positional" - "positional" means positions allowing for a successful attack - or to be attacked if you're not leary.
Minor advantages over other positional books: 1) How to squash 2 knights (or knight & bishop) with 2 bishops; 2) Getting a rook to the 6th rank; 3) ways in which weak pawns can be used as an advantage.
Topics: 1) Basic Endgames: A) King & Pawn; B) Rook & Pawn.
2) Thinking Techniques: A) What is a Plan? B) Imbalances
3) Calculation & Combinations: A) Calculation & training - Nowhere Near "The Inner Game of Chess" or "Think Like a Grandmaster," but a useful comment or 2; B) Rules of combination -- 1/20th of a combinations book, but a few useful comments.
4) Minor Pieces in the Middle Game: A) Using the Bishop; B) Understanding N's; C) B vs.
