This is a very solid effort from the gifted teacher, British GM Daniel King. It includes 20 GM games annotated in a 'guess the next move format, a way of learning that is considered by some chess instructors to be an optimal way of learning. After the opening phase, King asks you to predict pretty much every move for the winning side. A point system is used to give you a (rough) idea of your chess strength. This is a little gimmicky, of course, since the best idea of your strength comes from your over the board ( or online ) rating. Still, there is something that is really enjoyable about scoring your efforts! King gives points for alternative moves that are worthy of consideration. His comments on the positions are well worth studying, as he has a way of bringing clarity and logic to bear on chess positions. Brief intros are given, but unlike his superior work 'test your chess with Daniel King', there are no summaries of lessons learned at the end of each game. Nonetheless, this is a fine work, with fascinating games insightfully remarked on. King has a subtle, dry wit that I enjoy, as well. I would start with the prior mentioned work, and then proceed to this one for a fine and enjoyable filling out of your chess education. Four and 1/2 stars.

I agree with C. Dunn & R. Tobias evaluations of this book. Setting up master games in an interactive format inviting readers to calculate moves and giving feedback on the quality of each calculated or guessed move is an excellent way to help students of chess improve.
King analysis of the variations is clear and helpful.

When I look over a grandmaster game, I don't ask, "Why'd he do that?" Anybody can wave his hands and answer something incontrovertible like, "This move supports the piece on x and prepares for an attack." How helpful is that?
Instead, I ask, "Why didn't he do this other move?" This book makes an effort to answer that question for moves in about 20 master games of the 1990s.
The format is simple and consistent. After each move by the losing side, you are asked to choose your own move. Then you are graded. You get an amount of credit proportional to the strength of your move. If it's a blunder, that is often pointed out as well.
This helps you to learn from your own mistakes. It's far more instructive than most books of annotated games. It's simpler than Nunn's move-by-move book, deeper than Chernev's, and more like actually playing a game since you are only thinking about the moves made by one side.
In a way, the book is similar to Chris Ward's 'It's Your Move', but vastly superior, as this book discusses more alternative moves and far more positions. (Ward's 'Improvers' version, however, is quite good.)
Highly recommend for anyone with a rating between 1500-1700. I have no idea how accurate the rating predictions of the book are, but who cares?

This is indeed an excellent book but it is not NEW. It is a REPRINT of the 1993 CADOGAN book by the same title. I really feel IT SHOULD BE ADVERTISED AS SUCH.
