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.

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.
I second some of the other complaints, that there are an incredible amount of grammaical and spelling misakes, and that Mr Silman included an awful lot of his games. I don't think the latter is hubris, however. Rather, he may just be more familiar with the material, and may have made these moves with his method in mind. Also, I think his method is not as original as he has purported. I've read nimzowitch(sp?) notes which made some of the same ideas perfectly clear in the 1900's. Also, a lot of the exact same material has been published in chess life.
So, I think it's OK for a lower-rated player to learn planning, or a stronger player with weak planning skills, but if you already have a good grasp of strategy, at least flip through it first.
