This is 534-page one-of-a-kind chess book belongs in every serious chess player's library. It contains all of the useful, practical, information from over 400 chess books (plus many other sources). It is jam-packed with principles, tips, techniques, tricks, rules-of-thumb, general advice, and chess pearls of wisdom from the Masters. As a result, it contains more helpful information than certainly any other chess book in history. By eliminating the diagrams, games, variations and excessive examples, the book is about 40,000 pages shorter, 8 feet thinner, 188 pounds lighter than it would be... and it saves you about $8,000! If you want examples, you can get them from many other books and games. However, if you want a single book that covers nearly all of the essential concepts in chess; this is definitely the book for you. Being all text, you can take it with you wherever you go and read it (without a board). You can read it in your recliner, on a train, at the beach, in a restaurant, in the bathtub... almost anywhere (although probably not in the shower or while driving). You might be wondering if, without variations and examples, it can be easily comprehended. Well, aren't visualization and the process of doing things in your head at the very core of playing chess (not to mention the learning process itself)? Actually, the information is more likely to be retained by conceptualizing it. Take a look at the Introduction and Contents to get an idea just how comprehensive the book is. Is this book for all chess players? Actually, it should be very beneficial for almost all chess players from beginner up to about the master level. This book is for serious students of the game. It is also ideal for chess teachers. It is a textbook designed for the purpose of dispensing chess knowledge.

I no longer play in chess Tournaments due to my age, but with great books like this, I wish I did. My only wish is that this was on audio! I still study chess and play against my computers. I truly enjoyed reading Chess Words of Wisdom. I have told all of my friends about it. The author has done an excellent job in furthering chess knowledge. I also learned a lot about some of my chess heroes. His claims that you have many books condensed into one is true. He has had to paraphrase some of his axioms for legal reasons but that's irrelevant. it's their meanings that matter. In preparing for tournaments I have used a similar set of axioms made into an audio recording which I have gleaned from some of my chess books. I would listen to the recording throughout my day. My work was similar to what the author has here but not nearly as extensive. I have found that when I fill my mind with wise sayings they tend to come to mind when needed. I can then decide if they are truly appropriate. In fact I think this should be done for every subject i.e. our jobs, relationships, etc... Because when it comes right down to it, our knowledge in any given subject can be condensed down into these axioms. Our experience on when to use which axiom then turns the axiom into wisdom. I think using this audio axiom study technique helps to organize our subconscious in a way to aid our current efforts. As far as how I did in the tournaments with this technique: I didn't win every game, but I was feared! Thanks Mike Henebry for a great book.

This is a fun and interesting book loaded with chess wisdom. It's very different from something like Andy Soltis' "The Wisest Things Ever Said About Chess." There are no chess diagrams or game snippets. You instead get a very broad selection of chess wisdom. distilled down so you can read it when you're away from the chessboard. For example, when you're sitting in a physician's office. A nice book to turn occasionally for a bit of chess inspiration.

This is a book that I bought w/ much anticipation, thinking that I was going to get a book of distilled, valuable, memorable nuggets of chess wisdom that I could apply to my play. But I have found this book (which is an obvious labor of love) to be disappointing for several reasons: 1) NO CHESS POSITIONS- Ok, we know this going in to buying the book, so my bad for getting it, in a sense. But I believe that giving abstract chess principles without illustrating them with concrete positions is not the most effective way to learn chess. By way of contrast, look at Soltis' 'The Wisest Things Ever Said About Chess' for a much better executed example of what this book (kind of) tries to be. Soltis is far better organized and focused, each chapter starting w/ a memorable saying, and each is illustrated with concrete positions. Nontheless, I would like this book if it was the only issue, but there are more serious problems. 2) This book is UNFOCUSED. The subtitle suggests the content: "The Principles, Methods and Essential Knowledge of Chess". But the author goes way beyond this in an unfocused way. E.g., the 95 page section on Style is interesting from a historical and biographical standpoint, but a statement like "The Early Italian School was replaced in the mid-18th century by the Italian School" (p.335) is hardly core, essential knowledge. And as fascinating as reading about a famous player's style is, I don't think it is 'essential' to know details of historical players' style. Another concern is that the author seems to want to turn this into a primer of chess, spending much time on rather generic and basic advice. This has already been better done by numerous strong players such as Tarrasch, Seirawan, Silman and CJS Purdy to name only a few. 3) POOR EDITING. This book is badly in need of a good chess editor. A passage like a detailed description (without diagrams of course) of how to mate with R+K vs R should never have been published. Ditto for a bare listing of the names of numerous mates. There are many, many other places where editing is sorely needed. Can you learn from this book? Yes, you can. BUT, the opportunity cost is that you could use the same time to learn from more effective, better focused and better edited materials. Sadly, this is not a book that I can recommend.

The book is one of a kind! No Diagrams! Its fun to read a section and imagine ways to implement the meaning behind it. Its very refreshing and thought provoking. I highly recommend it...especially for chess coaches.

It's all words!

There are a few spelling errors here and there, but who cares? I'm about a third of the way through, and already I'm really happy with the purchase. I bought it, along with another similar book ("Mastering Chess Theory" by Desmond Allen) and I have to say...reading through them, despite any minor flaws they might have, these two books are just what I was looking for all these years.

I'm an on-again, off-again student of chess and part-time collector of chess books, so when it comes to chess books, I know what I'm looking for and what I'm not looking for by now. There are far too many chess books out there with endless pages of notation and variations and not much in terms of in-depth, plain-English explanations of the concepts involved with winning chess. That is why "Chess Words of Wisdom" is such a great resource. It provides a thinking space, if you will, to give the reader's mind time and direction for independently thinking about the game of chess in general and specific ways.
