The Art Of Planning In Chess – Move By Move


I decided to order “The Art of Planning in Chess – Move by Move” by Neil McDonald the other day and decided that I will share my thoughts with you.

Very interesting book. Only 39 games in it and very good logical explanations.  This weekend I must have gone through 6 games as I was nursing my wife who was sick.  Having a little son in the house and work to do meant that I did not get time to finish the book.   I guess that is the price of being married!

I might as well add that this weekend was busy as we had President Obama in town and I spent a bit of time watching him in action.  I was impressed by him meeting with representatives of civic societies at Kenyatta University and was just thinking how cool it would have been to have Chess Kenya there!

I have some photos of the book to see what I mean.
