Reviews - What do customers think about Secrets of Chess Intuition?

I would give this no stars  Oct 23, 2006
I ordered this book with a few other books such as Foundations of Chess Strategy, and Chess Self-Improvement and was extremely happy when it arrived. I read Foundations of Chess Strategy and loved it, (see my this site review), then I read Chess Self-Improvement, and that was pretty good as well. Finally it came time to read this book. This book was a great disappointment to me, considering I was expecting it to be extremely good, full with useful tips on how to improve your intuitive feel for positions but No, I was left disappointed.
Firstly, Alexander Beliavsky is a strong player, but this book was just horrible! Its title should be more on the lines of "Chess Tactics". NOT Chess Intuition! CAUSE ITS NOT!
Beliavsky talks about rook moving "right" and "wrong" rooks but he doesn't tell how to know intuitively which rook goes where. Nope!
Beliavsky talks about Tal and his successors such as Shirov, but he is a real character, he doesnt tell you how to know when they are sound or not! I mean common Alexander! What is a player supposed to do with that piece of garbage.
This is probably one of the worst gambit books I have every seen, and come to think of it I wanna go take this book to a shredder had have it shredded into pieces it so bad. Horrible Gambit book, horrible book overall. This book was probably put together in a whopping 5 seconds - it has absolutely no writing, and mainly just diagrams, and solutions, if you even call those solutions.
It seems to me that Jacob Aagaard is also in agreement with me, he states how he was "bitterly disappointed with this book" in his book Excelling at Chess (Positional)
