Many authors, especially strong players, have a hard time remembering the struggles they faced coming up through the ranks.
They tend to forget or underestimate how hard it is, especially for adults new to the game. This lack of recognition of the true strength of club players can cause them to write well above their intended audience and may account for the large number of instructional books that are never read cover to cover.
Fred Wilson’s Simple Attacking Plans won't suffer such a fate. This clear and straightforward instructional manual for attacking play, aimed principally at players from 1200 to 1800, offers the student 37 well-chosen and carefully annotated games. The notes, principally prose instead of Informant style commentary, are to the point and engage the reader. The games are not only instructive but also entertaining.
Simple Attacking Chess would make a perfect gift for the youngster or adult who knows the basics of the game but is looking to advance to the next stage.
“The games are well chosen and the notes are clear and to the point.” – IM John Donaldson
“Simple Attacking Plans is a classic right from the get-go. The games are terrific in their instructional value, and the way Wilson conceptualizes and explains the plans is worth its weight in gold to intermediate players and their coaches.” – Pete Tamburro, Jr. (author of Learn Chess from the Greats)
“I had a fantastic position, but I couldn’t figure out what to do next!” Sound familiar? If so, then Fred Wilson’s Simple Attacking Plans was written for you. The author distills the complexities of mounting an offensive against your opponent’s king down to four principles that lie at the root of most successful chess attacks.
Novice players and amateurs of intermediate strength will benefit from the explanations of ideas and tips for practical play, all presented in an easy, conversational style. More experienced competitors will appreciate this book as a games collection featuring masterpieces of enterprising play – some of them never before published.
