Rate this:

A follow-up to Neil McDonald's incredibly successful 'Chess: The Art of Logical Thinking', this insightful book takes a close look at some of the most outstanding games from the last 6 years, commenting on every single move as the game unfolds. This time, however, the emphasis is on planning, and how players plan their strategy many moves ahead.

The author's detailed approach gives you a rare opportunity to really get to the nitty-gritty of what goes through grandmasters' minds as they play. To avoid unnecessary repetition, the opening moves of each game are discussed more lightly - real discussion begins around the 10th move, which is where the planning stage really kicks in.
