  cro777: A useful book about strategic ideas in chess.

Sarhan Guliev's new book: "Winning Chess Manoeuvres: Strategic Ideas that Masters Never Fail to Find" (New in Chess, 2015)

In this book Guliev presents a wide range of strategic manoeuvres that have been repeatedly employed by great chess players.

Dennis Monokroussos: "I suspect that most of you, like me, had never heard of Sarhan Guliev prior to hearing about this book, but this is not Guliev's fault! He is a grandmaster from Azerbaijan who has won his national championship three times, so he's obviously a very competent player. The "problem" is that he has worked mainly as a chess coach since 2000. He has also worked as a writer, publishing 11 books, but aside from an Informant-style endgame book published in 2003 this is the first one to come out in English ... My recommendation for this entertaining and useful book."
