Before you read my review, I ask that you read the majority of the other reviews. This may give you a better feel for what I'm about to say.
This is a FANTASTIC book. It is destined to become a classic. But, after reading all the reviews, I have to make the following comment. This book may be written for a really strong player. (or players.)
I think you should be at least 1600-1800 to grasp much of what goes on in this book. There are certainly many valuable insights which will make you a better thinker and "Calculator." But in the long run, your calculating powers will already have to be fairly well developed to really benefit from this book. I was already a Master when this book came out. I spent close to 6 weeks with this book, and it made me a better thinker. But two of my students who have bought and read this book felt it did NOT make them better at calculating. Sadly, it may be true. The average GM may not remember what it was like to struggle to see one move ahead. Because they do not understand [or remember] the problems, it is difficult for them to address them.
If you think you are ready for this book, buy it. But if you have any doubts, get a couple of simple primers on tactics. Maybe "Logical Chess, Move by Move," by Chernev. Wait until your rating gets over 15-1600. Then buy this book.
On the positive side, this book is beautifully written. The examples are mostly very carefully chosen. And the book is wonderfully and beautifully annotated. This was truly a work of love by the author. If you are just looking for many, many hours of enjoyment, then you want this book.

Until you reach the 1900 to 2000 level the only thing that you should be studying is tactics and calculation. The reason for this is simple, if you can see 90% of the combinations on the board during a game, you will not have to even use postional advantages. Don't get me wrong positional play has a very important role, but more at the higher levels. If you can calculate efficiently and quickly you will have a huge advantage over all those people who just memorize opening moves, because after move 10 they're lost. Why are some children so strong at chess? It's because they can calculate well and can visualize the board. The bottom line is get this book along with a set of practice problems, like Reinfeld's 1001. Solve the problems, write down all your candidate moves and analysis, and you'll be amazed by how quickly you improve.

Can't understand the unrestrained adulation some reviewers have given this book. Soltis can write very well - see for example 'Soviet Chess' which is a scholarly work, or see 'Confessions of a Chess Grandmaster'. The title being reviewed here is also one of his better efforts.
The book explains the pragmatic realities of calculation very well indeed. A thoughtful reading of this book will enhance one's understanding of what to calculate, how to calculate, how far to calculate, and what positions deserve calculation. By implication, one's strength would improve.
It's difficult to provide a synopsis of this book because, like Kotov, it's not coherently orgainised but is a compendium of practical wisdom concerning calculation. Chapters include 'Trees and how to build them', 'Rechecking' and 'The Practical Calculator' - all of importance to a player.
I've given this four stars (and not five) for 3 reasons. The first is lack of organisation. The second, and more serious, is the sheer number of analytical mistakes. The very first example (Piket - Sosonko) has an error. The sacrifice 1.Rxh7 is actually unsound. 3....Bf5, which Soltis mentions in passing, holds the game for Black. Or examine the analysis to Ljubojevic - Stein, on page 58. 11.Qf4 works fine for White. Soltis hasn't done his spadework. The examples that are correct are frequently so because they've been pulled, with analysis, from other sources.This brings me to third criticism: many of the examples are hackneyed, and frequently don't exemplify the ideas well.
But these caveats aside, I can recommend this book. There is material to ponder over here. A pity Soltis didn't give the book the time and energy it deserved; it would have been a sterling work.

I am only a 1900-level player, so I can hardly be said to have an expert opinion, but I feel that this book is strong on "what" calculation is and weak on "how" to calculate. Of course, one looks at the board, gets ideas, selects candidate moves,and evaluates possible positions. And Soltis provides plenty of examples yet having studied the book, I can't honestly say I'm doing anything better. Not his fault, I know, still I wish these GM authors would remember that although THEY can look at a board and unconsciously, automatically, find a plan and possible move sequences, weaker players need more protection in the clinches. They need sometimes to work backwards: visualize the desired position first. Sometimes they need examples that explain WHY the author chose certain candidate moves, move orders, and so on. This book's intention are great, the introduction fantastic, the remaining chapters leave a great deal to be desired. Everyone else seems to find this a great help, but I actually feel my already shaky ability decreased after reading it. GMs should coach ordinary mortals first.
