Stick with Silman 5. Januar 2010
Von johnnyqb - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
This book, Revolutionize Your Chess, is like a less methodical Reassess Your Chess (Silman), which has the further disadvantage of having been translated from another language. This is one of those books that I wanted to like, but was unable to do so. Moskalenko is well-intended and has an energy to his writing. The problem is that the concept of the book has been executed far better in Silman's works. Moskalenko says that the reason that most players do not improve after a certain point is that "the general rules of the game have not been discovered yet." This is a statement of embarrassing naivete that makes this GM seem a bit out of touch with reality. One pictures Hans Berliner pounding his fist on the table with an emphatic "that's right!" upon reading this statement. As much as I think John Watson is similarly off base in claiming that the general rules of chess are at best half-truths, I far prefer the sobriety and scholarliness of Watson's assessment's to the half-baked ramblings offered here by Moskalenko.

There is a tremendous appeal to the patzer like me to a book which purports to posit a "new system" to revolutionize one's chess. Here, the "system" is to constantly consider 5 "dynamic" factors in all one's decisions: 1) material, 2) development, 3) placement of pieces and pawns, 4) king position, and 5) time. The problem with Steinitz, Lasker, and any other famous master who set forth such elements is that they failed to take "dynamic" factors into account. Yawn. Give me a break. When one works through the first few games in the book ("The Revolution in Practice") one quickly realizes that the 5 supposed dynamic factors really just come down to the question of whether a move is good or not. I think perhaps Lasker and Steinitz did understand this. Moskalenko's own games are rather crazy affairs where each side repeatedly misses the best move, and Moskalenko ends up winning the game, presumably because he has a better grasp of dynamics than his opponent. Here, "winning chess" really seems to be trying to cause your opponent time control problems by creating an extremely unclear position on the board. Is that dynamic chess? If modern chess is all about creating hard-to-fathom positions on the board, then the application of any systematic approach is misguided. Rather, one simply needs to out-calculate one's opponent. Maybe that is the essence of chess. Moskalenko has a pretty engaging annotation style, but the whole book would have been better conceived as a "My Best Games" collection than as another half-baked attempt to have "discovered" the real rules which govern chess.

A provoking Book 8. Januar 2010
Von M. Ararat - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
At first I did not like Mosalenko's repetitive praising of his "system", especially when he pointed out that Nimzovich examples were too simple (well, as a teacher I like "simple" examples if they keep my student engaged and on track).

Later, as I read more of his work I realized that the benefits that I can get from this book, outweight the inconveniences. I do not need to agree 100% with the author, I can use my judgment and take what I can use and discard the rest.

Pros:

1.The book has a novel approach: It starts with the endgame as a way to explain the characteristics of the pieces.

2.The author differentiates between chess skill and personal skill. This part of the book can show you were to improve or the order to prioritize your study time.This is something you have to do on your own...

3.In the middle game section the author explain the dynamic potential of the isolated pawn and Pawn structures with a lot of examples from Karpov, Lobron, Howell,Kramminik.

4.Mosalenko is a good annotator and an active contributor to NIC which make the section on the opening very interesting ( KID, Stonewall).

5.The author is passionate about his work and he made a big effor to pack a lot in 352 pages. You get a lot on different subjects and I think the tittle is appropriate, this book really make you think on your chess.

Cons:

1.The start of the book has couple of unnecessary comments on other authors work. You do not need to speak negatively of your fellow coworkers (Mosalenkos's comments target a NIC author...), just explain and develop your ideas.

In summary, this book provides good and current chess material (endgame, middlegame and opening) as well a frame work to evaluate a chess position and your performance (chess and personal skills). I agree with the previous reviwer on the importance of Silman and Heisman work but I think this book stands on its own, it just help a part of your chess.

I recently passed the 1900 USCF mark and a that level is my appreciation of this book, may be a higher rated reviewer will disagree with me , but here are my two cents.

Bad book by Good Author 1. Februar 2011
Von Bubba Tough - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I am an above average chess player, and am making my contribution to the site by reviewing a number of chess books. My reviews are intended to be a bit harsher than average, since Amazon has so many 5 star books its hard to use the rating system to help the selection process. Thus, my reviews are aimed at lowering this average for all but the very best books.

Moskalenko is a talented author, who has written several fine books. This is not one of them. To emphasize this point, the quote on the front of the book by John Watson: "Simply Sparkles with ideas" was actually for another book. On the back of the book there are two more quotes, also for other books. Assumably, this is because it is hard to find someone who likes this book.

Moskalenko presents a fairly standard idea on how to categorize advantages in a very confusing and artificial way. This basic approach has been done by many others much better. He presents a few examples, and then tries to show you the advantages or disadvantages of moves by referring to the code he gave each advantage instead of the actual name of it. For example, if a piece is put on a bad square, he will notate in the game (-T3). I doubt many find that helpful compared to using a descriptive word or phrase. Much better explanations of the basic concepts in this books can be found in books such as How to Reassess Your Chess or even an old book like Point Count Chess. If this was all there was to the book, I would probably give it only one star. Fortunately, there is some pretty interesting position and game analysis. Much of it has been published before though. Overall, my advice is not to buy this book unless you are paging through it and see some opening analysis relevant to you...and even then check around and see if you can find a different book with the same analysis more focussed on your interests.

Great book! 25. November 2010
Von David Borensztajn - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
I bought the book because I use to play the Dutch. Altough I have a lot of books about that defence, Moskalenko's book explains the Stonewlall as nobody else did.
No long and boring variations, only ideas, plans and pawn structures. Besides all this he solves the "c8 Black Bishop" which is one of the mais problems in the
Dutch. The book has a personal method, and you can take it or not, since so many, before him, already published methods of thinking.
In the book Moskalenko teaches you about the King Indian Defence 4 pawns variation, and has a few good ideas.
I read and studied the whole book, without being tired, and this is a favorable thing in chess books, where you usually look only the lines you are interested.
The book is a must for the begginer and intermediate player!

A very dubious chess system / Un "sistema" de dudosa aplicación 14. März 2010
Von Manuel Lopez Michelone - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
In english:

Revolutionize your Chess is undoubtely an interesting effort of GM Moskalenko. However, his system is based in five touchstones, and I think they are not very convincing: 1. material; 2. Development; 3. position of the figures; 4. king's position and 5.time. Take out the last touchstone and we have what Steinitz show to us about how to evaluate a position. Moskalenko says that the time factor is not even mentioned in important books like Nimzowitch's My System and probably this is why Moskalenko system is revolutionary.

In my opinion, there is nothing new under the sun. In Nimzowitch's system, the author give us examples where his system is applied, like the blocking piece, the passed pawn,revolutionary attack and evolutionary attack, etc. In Moskalenko's book, his dynamic chess examples, often from his own games, look difficult to apply the author's ideas. Maybe a. the examples are not the best ones or b. the system cannot be applied to the games he presents. Many of Moskalenko examples are difficult positions to evaluate and the ultimate result often comes from time trouble at the end of the game.

Let's see an example. In some position, Moskalenko evaluate it using his 5 touchstones to find out who has the advantage. He then says then -T2 +T3, he means: white has a insecure king (not too much) and a little advantage in time But... what is better? Time advantage or king security? How to contrast one to each other to find who is better? A real mystery.

So, Moskalenko went so far in his system and even he has a very interesting approach, I can't find a general method to be applied to a chess game to finally accomplish the goal of playing a better chess.

Briefly: To me, Moskalenko rewrote Pachman, Nimzowitch and others about what is chess strategy. I cant find a real new system to a better chess. Looks to me, in some way, just a clever book title more than real a way to play better chess.

En español:

Revolucione su Ajedrez es sin duda un interesante esfuerzo del GM Moskalenko. Sin embargo, el sistema que define, que se basa en cinco "touchstones", no resulta convincente: 1) material, 2) desarrollo, 3) posición de las piezas y los peones, 4) posición del rey y 5) tiempo. En principio -si quitamos el 5 postulado- los otros cuatro forman de alguna manera lo que ya Steinitz nos enseñó sobre cómo valorar una posición. Moskalenko en su quinto touchstone indica que esto no se ha tratado en libros como Mi Sistema de Nimzowitch y por ende, esto es probablemente lo que lo hace revolucionario, de acuerdo al autor.

Mi opinión es que no hay nada nuevo bajo el sol. A diferencia de Nimzowitch, que en "Mi Sistema", el autor pone ejemplos donde se aplican elementos como "el bloqueador", "el peón pasado", "ataque evolucionado vs ataque revolucionado", los ejemplos del ajedrez "dinámico" que muestra Moskalenko en muchas de sus propias partidas, no parece poder aplicar su revolucionario sistema a las mismas. Da la impresión que pasan dos posibles cosas: (a) o los ejemplos están mal elegidos o (b) el sistema simplemente no es aplicable a las partidas que presenta. De hecho las partidas modelo que presenta para probar sus cinco touchstones se resuelven en posiciones complejas, de difícil evaluación y normalmente en apuro del reloj.

Pondré un ejemplo: en una posición determinada Moskalenko valora, a través de sus cinco touchstones, quién tiene la ventaja. Dice entonces -T2 +T3, es decir, el blanco tiene inseguro el rey (no demasiado) y un poco más de ventaja en tiempos. ¿Pero qué es mejor? ¿ventaja temporal o seguridad del rey? ¿cómo contrastar una con la otra par llegar a una conclusión? Misterio.

Pienso que Moskalenko ha ido demasiado lejos en su sistema y aunque es un enfoque interesante, no parece sin embargo, dar verdaderos elementos para que el ajedrecista, al aplicar los cinco postulados de Revolucione su Ajedrez, mejore en hallar mejores jugadas.

En resumen: Da la impresión que Moskalenko ha rescrito lo que ya Pachman, Nimzowitch y otros han dicho sobre la estrategia ajedrecística. No encuentro un verdadero sistema en el libro de Moskalenko ni manera de sacar provecho práctico a su enfoque.
