New Ideas in the Four Knights (Batsford Chess Library) by John Nunn
Henry Holt & Co | 1993 | English | ISBN: 0805026290 | 130 pages | PDF | 13 MB

Traditionally regarded as a solid, but rather dull opening, the Four Knights has recently been completely transformed by the games of Nigel Short, Murray Chandler and John Nunn. Grandmaster John Nunn looks at this newly revitalized and effective winning weapon and presents his selection of the most theoretically important games. John Nunn is one of the co-winners of the British Chess Federation's Book of the Year Award for "Secrets of Grandmaster Play".

In my opinion, Nunn's Chess Openings is every bit as good as Modern Chess Openings-14, which I also own. NCO is denser and has more lines, but MCO-14 is slightly easier to use. Both books compliment each other. It is very interesting to note how each book often differs in their evaluations of identical lines. If you're an intermediate player or stronger, I recommend getting BOTH!

This is my initial book review for amazon.Previous to reading Nunn's opus,I've always assumed endgames were of a strategical nature.Kotov in "Think like a grandmaster" tells a story about Capablanca's endgames.He claims to have met him at some chess event where a lecture was being given about endings.Capas basic claim was that planing the optimum location for the chess pieces in the ending was more important than the tatical variations.One gets the impression that the tatical variations just become automatically apparent once the strategical plan via piece place comes to fruition.Therefore the endgame can be fathomed intuatively with only a minimal effort of analysis.Nunn's book dispells that notion entirely by claiming endgames can be tatical.They can also be strategical like any other part of the game.Many strong grandmasters overlook many combinative possibilities in this part of the,because of such sterotypic thinking as mentioned above.This book can help one approach the ending with a fresh pair of eyes.From a personal perspective I have always over looked opportunities in combinative endgames assuming they do not exist.Now I know better.This book has freed me of such generalized thinking.A paradox I have seemed to stumble across is that apparently simple end games even appear to be more tatical than complex ones.Nunn by accident in his introductory statement seems to have also made a beautiful distinction between strategy and tactics. The former being the creation of plans and the latter being it's execution once it's apparent.The games are classics.Many include ideas such as mates, Stalemates, Promotion, Positional draws,fortresses ect.
