Item description for S.T.A.R. Chess (Gambit Chess) by Paul Motwani...

"S.T.A.R. Chess" is built around four themes: Strategy--making a successful plan; Tactics--the detailed execution of a plan; Attack--the ultimate goal of the plan; and Reaction--meeting the opponent's ideas. Acclaimed author Paul Motwani discusses these four elements of successful chess with the same wit and clarity that has characterized his previous writings on the game. Here he applies his original, mnemonic-based approach to the strategy and tactics of attack, defense, and counterattack. This book is packed with instructive model examples starting from a wide spectrum of opening systems, presenting a treasure trove of ideas to surprise even the most experienced of opponents. Interspersed with the instruction are test positions and puzzles to improve your skills in reasoning -- necessary if you are to become a brighter chess S.T.A.R. yourself!

Reviews - What do customers think about S.T.A.R. Chess (Gambit Chess)?

Entertaining and Informative  Aug 25, 2008
Still in the first chapter, but I did skim ahead. So far, I really like it. It has in-depth analysis of all the lessons, and some very entertaining "math nad numbers" asides are interspersed. Being both a chess AND math junkie, the premise of this book seemed a perfect read. So far, it has not disappointed. If you like numbers as much as I do, get it and enjoy!!
A gem by a great author  Feb 25, 2002
Paul Motwani's books are stimulating, and I find myself able to work through long variations in his books more than I can in the works of other authors, because of a certain contagious enthusiasm that he has for the game. I like how he ties chess into life, and somehow he gets me to work through his books, while many so-called classics put me to sleep. STAR Chess (low-priced here at this site) is a wonderful book. Working through the chapter on the Sicilian Dragon (focused on the Yugoslav) is alone worth the price of the book. This is along book packed with chess, and with other fun things, such as word and math problems, thrown in to keep you alert. One gets the feeling that this author really wants his readers to love and aimprove at chess. I heartily recommend all of his books. Grab them while you still can!
