- A newly revised edition of the 1970s classic, designed to reflect modern chess thinking on the art of chess defence.

- lIIustrated with games played by masters of defence past and present, including the current world champion Magnus Carlsen, plus quiz sections to test your knowledge.

Most chess games are not won - they are lost. There are many chess books that show you how to clinch the win when you have the advantage, but New Art of Defence offers tips and techniques on how to get out of trouble - and even turn the tables - when the chips are down.

Demonstrating how to anticipate threats, accept sacrifices, and minimize losses, international grandmaster Andy Soltis shows defensive play to be intensely tactical and anything but dull. By giving advice on staying cool under fire, stonewalling and exploiting your opponent's weaknesses, he reveals the priorities, principles and mental attitudes of good defenders and shows you how to adopt them.

An up-to-date and invaluable resource for today's competitive player.

Andrew Soltis is chess correspondent for the New York Post and a very popular chess writer. He is the author of many books, including What It Takes to Become a Chess Master, 100 Chess Master Trade Secrets and Pawn Structure Chess.
