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

Great vaulted cathedrals of variations!  Mar 20, 2006
This book is about "the very special moment of the game when, as if by magic, an attack becomes possible." I have this vision of Marin as an elderly Klingon, waving his flask of blood wine and regaling you with the most fantastic stories! It's like he's sitting in front of you with a chess board, showing you everything, pausing for effect, slamming down a devastating move then demonstrating why there is no good reply to it. He's with you, he's involved, he's enthusiastic, passionate. The text is alive. It's more like reading a novel than a chess book! These must be his own words; no translator is mentioned. He tells you what he thinks are the psychological processes in the minds of top players - then backs it up by demonstrating exactly the same human foibles in his own games - not something he could do if he were not a strong GM! This is a benefit of having a strong GM as an author - not only do you get absolutely accurate analysis, but also the insight into how much of it was seen at the board. Frighteningly large amounts! Great vaulted cathedrals of variations, stained glass and all. OK there's lots of analysis, but don't be scared by the look of the pages. Imagine the guy in front of you, and it's like he's telling you stories of dragon-slaying, and the sequences of moves are the lurid details of how he chased it behind a rock and was nearly eaten when it sprang out over the top. The lines of analysis are as necessary and as amazing as the moves that actually happened in the games. This is a book to take your time over and savour.
