Chess for Zebras : Thinking Differently about Black and White
by Jonathan Rowson

Chess for Zebras : Thinking Differently about Black and White NLXHlS

Jonathan Rowson, author of the highly acclaimed "Seven Deadly Chess Sins," investigates three questions important to all chess-players:
1) Why is it so difficult, especially for adult players, to improve?
2) What kinds of mental attitudes are needed to find good moves in different phases of the game?
3) Is White's alleged first-move advantage a myth, and does it make a difference whether you are playing Black or White?

In a strikingly original work, Rowson makes use of his academic background in philosophy and psychology to answer these questions in an entertaining and instructive way. This book assists all
players in their efforts to improve, and provides fresh insights into the opening and early middlegame.
Rowson presents many new ideas on how Black should best combat White's early initiative, and make use of the extra information that he gains as a result of moving second. For instance, he
shows that in some cases a situation he calls "Zugzwang Lite" can arise, where White finds himself lacking any constructive moves. He also takes a close look at the theories of two players who,
in differing styles, have specialized in championing Black's cause: Mihai Suba and Andras Adorjan.

Thanks to Karpov and to the original uploader (from ChessIndia)! sunny

A hugely successful book, and it indeed makes you think differently about chess in general, and about your game in particular.
