Item description for Chess Explained: The Queen's Indian by Peter Wells...

Chess Explained is a new series of books about chess openings. They are not theoretical works in the traditional sense, but more a series of lessons from a chess expert with extensive over-the-board experience with an opening. You will gain an understanding of the opening and the middlegames to which it leads, enabling you to find the right moves and plans in your own games. It is as if you were sitting at the board with a chess coach answering your questions about the plans for both sides, the ideas behind particular moves, and what specific knowledge you need to have. The Queen's Indian is an important and popular opening at all levels of play. Black's flexible stance allows him to choose between a range of solid and dynamic structures. In turn, White can play flexibly, opposing Black's fianchetto, or can try to force the pace in the center and start a hand-to-hand fight. It is an opening rich in nuances, and many of the modern main lines involve moves that look extravagant, but are backed up by a deep underlying logic.

Reviews - What do customers think about Chess Explained: The Queen's Indian?

Good stuff  Jun 14, 2008
I'm not going to judge to Queen's Indian Defence. It's reliable and used by many of the top Grand Masters around the world. That's all I'll say about that. The book, however, does a great job of providing explanitary prose so that we may learn this most playable and dynamic opening. The book's primary aim, I think, is to provide a playable repetiore against 1.d4, provide some analysis, but mainly emphasise understanding of the ideas and strategies behind black's and white's moves.
If you're considering taking up the Queen's Indian Defence as black, then this book will definitely help. Highly Recommended.
worth buying even if you dont play the queens indian  Sep 23, 2006
what a great book! relatively easy to read, and i'm learning a great deal about structures and middlegame plans. lots of explanations of ideas, manoevers, when you want to do something and when you don't, etc. i'd give it six stars if i could.
