Descripción del producto
Colin Crouch convinces us with his own games and in his entertaining style that it is very useful to analyse your own games. Especially the lost ones, something even grandmasters don't like to do. --Bab en Truus Wilders, Nederlands Dagblad
Reseña del editor
Leading chess author Colin Crouch believes that the key to sustained chess improvement lies in the critical analysis and assessment of your own games. Each and every game you play provides a significant learning opportunity, and this opportunity should never be squandered. In this sequel to his acclaimed Why We Lose at Chess, Crouch examines what we should do to maximize our chess results and ratings, how to turn losses into draws, and draws into wins. Here he focuses on key issues such as improving decision making, how to plan after the opening, how to maintain objectivity, improving endgame skills, the psychological aspects of the game, and much more. Read this book, analyse your chess, and get ready to improve your results! *An indispensible guide to chess improvement *Key advice on planning, strategy and tactics *Covers opening, middlegame and endgame playVer Descripción del producto

First of all, the book is enjoyable. Crouch discusses his games, with an emphasis on games he should have won or should have drawn, but lost or drew. Crouch's style is positional, which is fine, but his repertoire is limited, and this book features many Scandinavian Defenses, an opening I neither play nor face (since I open with 1. d4) but I still found the games instructive. They are thoroughly annotated without the analysis being overly complex, and there are many instructive middlegames and endgames. Honestly, I am not sure if this book will improve my chess, but I found it an enjoyable read, written very candidly. I like this book!
Overall I like his books well enough that when they are on a chess subject of interest to me, I lean towards buying because he is the author. The books, including this one, are well-suited for browsing without a board because of plentiful diagrams and the prose descriptions. In "Analyse your chess", Crouch explains his thinking in great detail in his own games -- I find it fascinating as a very personal look at an IM level player's thinking and consideration of his weaknesses, focusing on errors which hinder his progress (and comeback recovering from a stroke and near blindness).
I was disappointed in the lack of a chronological list of games, although there is an index of games by opponent. The introduction and final chapter discussed this aspect of the book and the results extensivelyand I found the statistical approach of these two sections to be boring but others may not.
All three books mentioned have the "Look Inside" feature at Amazon.com. Reader reviews of Modern Chess shed more light on the editing issues I mentioned (one was titled, "Brilliant, but with editing difficulties"). The day I bought Modern Chess I was shopping with my wife and looked forward to stealing a few minutes to examine it while she tried on clothes. I was at first so concerned with a couple of examples that I feared I'd bought a lemon and looked up those Amazon reviews. Happily the book turned out to be a find and a personal favorite, and I will always consider books by Colin Crouch to be of potential interest.
