That said, the writing itself is kind of hard to understand, some ambiguity as far as the meaning; not too many fitness people also write well (tho there are some, such as books by Baechle & Wescott). If you already have a good background In functional fitness I guess the words will make more sense to you. Or if you just want to see the functional exercises, because there are...

The Zukertort System: A Guide for White and Black

The author has done a fantastic job in going through the various middlegames that you would encounter with the Zukertort System. My only complaint is that the author spends some time going over the name of this opening, stating that it's really not important, and then adds to the confusion by proceeding to add yet another name to the mix -- the "Jusupovka" in honor of Grandmaster Artur Yusupov who adopted the system as a specialty of...

Starting Out: 1 e4!: A Reliable Repertoire for the Improving Player

Neil does a great job explaining the openings chosen and the ideas behind what his recommends. The more I read and study the book the more I appreciate his ability to "teach the opening". There is limited space, however so exhaustive or even extensive treatments are not possible. The major plus in this book, which I have NEVER found in any "1 book for white opening repetoire" is Neil recommends using the Open Sicilian as white. I hav...
