Book Review: Art Of Attack In Chess –

It just a matter of preference Mate in 3 El99m 12 min ago. The signal to noise ratio in Art Of Attack is very high, and therefore the information is very densely packed. Mar 20, Seth rated it really liked it Shelves: Published January 1st by Everyman Chess first published Feb 05, Emilio rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: However, defensive specialists should also study it, so that they know how their opponent is going to attempt to attack and how to prevent those attacks.

Thanks for telling vukocic about the problem.

Then again, though, attacking chess has always been ar weak point. Kyaterekera Brendah rated it it was amazing Oct 23, Apr 6, cyess Otherwise though it is probably my single most favorite chess book out there. Some people like books, other softwares, videos etc. That may sound daunting, but Art Of Attack is actually an amazing work to read. Art Of Attack In Chess is certainly readable by anyone of reasonable intelligence, but there is a certain amount of experience required to understand the information well enough for it to be useful.


Do you recommend Art of Attack?

Yes, books suit some people more than others. However, I did find the “BxPch” chapter quite enlightening. I am currently primary working on improving my tactics and calculation skills. Lists with This Book.

The chapters elucidate the minutiae of the attack on the King, leaving no stone unturned, and yet each follows logically from the previous, slowly binding all the concepts into a cohesive whole. I would say, with that in mind, that a minimum level of skill to be get much of anything out of the book would have to be aroundbut it will be really really difficult.

Now we come to the question of who should read this book. You should still read the book.

There are no discussion topics on this book yet. And in the copy that I own, John Nunn adds his vldimir commentary and corrections to the original Vukovic text. Almost the entire pages of it! Want to Read saving….

Book Review: Art Of Attack In Chess

I dont understand that, the feeling of the attacking potential of a position cannot be grasped by such means is this in reference to what transpires before the puzzle begins. When solving a puzzle, the existence of a tactical sequence is granted, and you just haveto find it.


Shawn Micheal rated it liked it Dec 13, It is also important that the would-be attacker not commit to the attack until all the preconditions are met, and Vukovic writes at some length, with examples, about what happens when the attack begins too early or too late. This is a great guide to the offensive, no matter what the state or stage of the game. The best follow-up i can think of to josh waitzkin’s “attacking chess”.

This book really helped me break out of this counter-productive mindset. Nunn clearly did not just mechanically convert the old text to algebraic form.

Attakc 19, Serge Pierro rated it it was amazing Shelves: At first this may seem a bit improbable. Too early and the attack will fizzle, while if the attack begins to late, the attacker may have missed his window of opportunity. Calculation is vukobic mainly by solving numerous puzzles, but the feeling of the attacking potential of a position cannot be grasped by such means. The part about attacking the uncastled King was especially instructive and I really think I have won many games based on the less I picked up here.

A study of this masterpiece will add power and brilliance to any chess enthusiast’s play.
