Product reviews for Chess Improvement

Harriet Hunt, chess International Master
Chess Improvement is one of those chess books that contains so many rich and uncomfortable truths that as a player you are dimly aware of, but may have avoided facing up to. It forces you to look starkly at your whole relationship with and attitude to studying and playing chess. It is a wonderfully creative collaboration between educational psychologist Barry Hymer and Peter Wells, one of the most thoughtful and eloquent English chess writers, and draws on contributions from top English players with whom Peter has worked extensively over the last few decades. The sometimes haphazard personal trajectories of these players, who forged to the top of English and international chess despite the absence of any specific or helpful guide to their development, leap from the page.
