"Before you can play well" author Tim Harding notes, "you must stop playing badly." To help you from making the same mistakes over and over, this newly updated chess classic shows how to learn from your losses by recognizing the warning signs as they develop and by analysing games gone wrong. Harding offers expert analysis of each stage of the game - opening, middle, and endgame - along with insight into why players lose from good positions as well as weak ones, and how pressures of time can be a problem. For this edition, he has included new material focusing on the change from traditional correspondence chess to forms of play based on e-mail and the internet, as well as a detailed examination of the intricacies of computer chess and the ways in which practice with computers can benefit players from novice to grandmaster.... When you have finished studying this book, you will have a much greater awareness of why you lose games and will be well on the way to turning a high proportion of your losses into draws and wins. Moreover, you will enjoy your chess more as your results improve. --- excerpts from book's back cover
