Which books should i get? I've got a few books, namely Reassess your chess, Think like a Grandmaster and The Reassess your chess workbook. These books have helped me alot, in my overall chessplay, ultimatly improving my game to expert strength. I plan to buy a few more, however there are many out there, and i dont know which ones would be the best. I'm not too keen on getting books on openings, however the middlegame and its strategies would be a most likely consideration. Considering, that i can fully grasp the content in the above mentioned books, what should i get from there on...

All comments welcome

Thanks in advance

Books Anything by Dvoretsky is good. Most of Soltis's books (The Inner Game of Chess, Pawn Structure Chess, and The Art of Defense in Chess) are good. Vukovic's Art of Attack and Nimzowitsch's My System are classics, two of the best chess books ever. One of the best recent books is Secrets of Modern Chess Strategy by Watson. Other than that, you might want to get a book on the endgames--Shereshevsky has written a few.

Hope this helps.

If you look at the back of Reassess your chess silman has given a good selection of books. I especially like Brilliancies by yasser seirawan.

my favorites my system by nimzowitch
all of silman's
chess fundementals by capablanca
and a couple of opening books are probably a must

silman has a book review page that is worth checking out

brobishkin I havent quite completed all the tests in the workbook, however i am doing well, still working on them when i get time.

I'll be going to the bookshop to get hold of the classics, "My system" & "The art of attack in chess".
Ive heard that Lev Alburt's, Comprehesive Chess Course Series is good, volumes 3 and on. However some say, that it is complete rubbish. I'm going to check them out anyways.

Thanks for the recommendations.
