Finding strong moves doesn't simply depend on how much you know about chess. In fact, greater conceptual knowledge makes choosing a move more complex as it increases the number of directions your mind can take. More important is optimizing your thought process.

Grandmaster Joel Benjamin knows that pointing out the moves his students missed is just half the job. They need to understand that they were looking in the wrong direction.

Chess engines offer little help in this because they can’t explain why you went astray. What’s more: an engine may send the wrong message! Many chess players don’t realise that the top computer move frequently isn’t the best move to play during the game.

This book will improve the structure and effectiveness of your decision making process. You will learn to:
-- choose between two attractive continuations
-- avoid taking the wrong direction at the start of your deliberations
-- know when it is necessary to spend more time
-- recognize unlikely moves
-- understand when you need to sacrifice material
-- and much more.

By applying a grandmaster’s train of thought you will more often arrive at strong moves and substantially improve your game.

Sean Marsh, CHESS Magazine (UK):
"It is quite clear that Joel Benjamin has put a lot of time and effort into this book. I feel this could go on to become one of 2019’s ‘greatest hits."

International Master John Donaldson:
"A solid mixture of instruction and training that will help players rated between 2000 and 2400 in thinking more effectively during their games. Highly Recommended."

John Hartmann, Chess Life Magazine:
"Clear and accessible without sacrificing complexity, and funny. The explanations are exemplary. Insightful, well-structured and it fulfils the promise of its title."

Both the links in ChessCaissa's post are working perfectly. Why don't you check before asking for re-upload ?  If you are one of the people now getting an error code with zippyshare because it has been banned in your country (as it has in the UK) I posted an easy workaround here:
