"How to Improve You Chess" is devoted to the player who already knows the rudiments of the game and wants to become more proficient. The book is designed specifically for the average player-- to help him tighten his game to the point at which he can take genuine pride and pleasure in it. The authors, great chess authorities, give pointers on what objects to pursue and how to meet specific kinds of attack. Their method is to take several games and play them out, and the reasons for victory or defeat made clear. Special attention is paid to openings, including Sicilian Defense, Queen's Gambit Declined, and Bird's Opening, and to strategy, especially the management of bishops and the playing of pawns for the formation of a strong pawn center.
