About this item

Today’s young players have benefited greatly from working with chess computers. There is little doubt that advanced software programs have significantly contributed to the rise of the overall standard of play.

But there is a downside as well. Many young chess players see the computer as the ultimate answer to nearly everything and have gradually stopped thinking and analysing for themselves.
The prominent Russian chess trainer Alexander Kalinin argues that what you need to make real progress is not more computer input, but increased understanding. To discover the ultimate secrets of chess you must (re)develop the habit of using your own brain.

Kalinin provides a wealth of training material. The vast majority of his examples has never been published before. He reveals the mistakes he himself made as a candidate master and mostly uses games of players who themselves are on the road to chess mastery.
