Item description for The Attacking Manual 2: Technique and Praxis by Jacob Aagaard...
The old masters dealt only with the static features of positional rules. But these are insufficient to explain the basics of chess. The problem is that chess, like other sciences, has undergone a dynamic revolution, but chess literature doesn't yet reflect it. In this major work Aagaard explains the rules of attack (the exploitation of a dynamic advantage), balanced between understandable examples, and deep analysis. Five years in the making, this book deals with weak kings, sacrifices, various minor attacking themes, intuitive sacrifices, opposite castling, modern king hunts, and enduring initiative.

Am I over 13? I don't know..I don't have that many fingers....... Apr 14, 2010
Great book!(so far) Not a cover to cover data dump (nobody could accuse Mr. Aagaard of ever dong this). I like his books and if he'd quit having issues with another writer I like quite a bit, I'd like his book even more. Mr. Aagaard does something I've always admired about good writers....He Writes...and doesn't just pronounce a heaping pile of analysis a book. He is thought-provoking, instructive, and generally keeps me interested in the subject matter more than most. No I haven't finished it yet,I'm still working on his other books and you know what? Like martha says "that's a good thing" I should go back to reading now before I start quoting reruns of Johnny Quest or tip my hand as to how old I am. Just Buy The Book and be happy!
