From the Back Cover:

Most chess books aim to guide and instruct by offering principles, rules, schemes and theories. Creative Chess, on the other hand, has a quite different and original approach. It firmly maintains that every chessplayer, whether amateur or master, is capable of creating something new in chess. After a discussion of the characteristics and processes of creativity, 10 central concepts, such as unusual positioning and functioning of pieces, alertness to subtle differences, absurd moves, and flexibility, are presented with a wealth of truly amazing examples to encourage the reader to broaden the horizons of his chess thinking. With further chapters on techniques for developing creativity, analysis of particularly creative games and test-yourself positions, the author, an Israeli chessmaster, prominent study composer and organizational psychologist argues that you, too, can play creative chess.

About the Author:
