Probably, you would go to the library or a bookstore. The first option takes a lot of time, and it is not very convenient because not all books can be taken home. The second option is bookstores. However, it is not cheap buying books today.

A very enjoyable-learning book. I like it! Now I have Experts vs the Sicilian, and it is interesting to see how this new book recommends for white to counter many of the interesting lines that I learned from Emms book. Anyway, Emms book is really fantastic. It doesnt cover the Taimanov, although certainly the lines do sometimes transpose. One awesome thing about the book is that the first part of the book focuses on pawn structures and ideas. Such as whether to set up a hedgehog structure or a schevenigen pawn structure in various situations.
These ideas are very usefull as you go through the specific variations throughout the book. The book has puzzles, all of the puzzles come from actual games and the players, location, and year of the game is always indicated in the puzzle solution. His puzzles come from three sources, his own games, games from the years that are in The Week In Chess and Megabase , and games from old soviet tournaments. The book is pleasantly wide and contains 8 high quality print puzzles per page.
In chapter 1, he introduces the tactical ideas and terms that will be used in the book. In chapter 2, there are over level 1 puzzles. He describes level 1 puzzles as a starting block for those who have little experience in dealing with chess puzzles.
The first 34 problems give you a hint under the diagram, those are the only puzzles in the book in which you are given a hint. I actually like that because when you are playing a real game you are never given hints, so I believe this format prepares you better. In chapter 3 there are 66 checkmate puzzles that range in difficulty from , with the most difficult puzzles appearing towards the end.
He descrives level 4 puzzles as puzzles that even grandmasters would have trouble with. Chapter 4 has medium difficulty puzzles difficulty levels Chapter 5 is a self-test. This test should take about hours to complete.
Chapter 6 has 86 puzzles from the Soviet Championships from , the difficulty of these puzzles range from level Chapter 7 has 44 "Find The Wrong Move" puzzles. This chapter was intended to teach you how to spot a blunder from your opponent.
Chapter 8 is a self-test. Chapter 9 has 80 puzzles that range in difficulty from level Chatpter 10 is a self-test. Chapter 11 has puzzles of level 5 difficulty. It is a ridiculously good book.
Except for the KIA french i enjoy playing all the lines i also play the ruy lopez on occasion. I wouldnt recommend it to those below He must now be as bald as a coot.

Customer Book Reviews clearly explained By Rick Deckard on Jan 26, Sometimes for me the problems with chess books are they will throw out the main line and launch into deep analysis and variation upon variation, so that all too soon I am lost. Or the opposite in some opening books where it is so basic and generic nothing of practical use is realized. I have found this book to be a nice compromise. The writer begins with basic opening traps, then quickly moves to sound guidelines and builds with well explained lines.
