Grandmaster Artur Yusupov is perhaps
the strongest chess trainer on the planet. His
name appeared on the top player rating lists
directly below Kasparov and Karpov during
the prime of his career.
In the first of three volumes of the
Boost Your Chess series, Yusupov
stoops down to lend a hand to the many
aspiring club players who will benefit
from clear guidance in chess fundamentals
from an experienced Grandmaster and trainer.
Yusupov shows he can switch gears from training
World Champion Vishy Anand to illuminating the
essentials of the game for the average player.
Volume 2, Beyond the Basics, will take this same
group of players to the next level. The third volume
will lead them down the road to Mastery.
This series is similar in structure to the highly acclaimed Build Up Your Chess series, which won the FIDE 2009 Boleslasvky award for the best instructional chess book, edging out Kasparov and Dvoretsky.
