Analyzing the Chess Mind (hc)
224 Seiten, gebunden, Quality, 1. Auflage 2022
Analyzing the Chess Mind is an exploration of psychology in chess. Psychology affects the chess moves we make, as the authors entertainingly illustrate in expertly annotated examples, but our personal chess psychology is not fixed. We can improve our chess psychology, and the authors show how.
To write about chess psychology, the ideal authors would have world-class chess skills and advanced professional qualifications in psychology, so GM Boris Gulko and Dr Joel Sneed are perfect for the task of Analyzing the Chess Mind .
GM Boris Gulko is one of the few players to have a plus score against Garry Kasparov, and is also the only man to have been both Soviet and U.S. Chess Champion. He has a Master’s degree in Psychology from Moscow State University.
Dr. Joel R. Sneed is a Professor of Psychology at the City University of New York and a keen amateur chess player.
