Deep and thoughtful reviews - thanks! There aren't enough serious chess book reviewers on the web. Let's spread the word.

Thanks, all.  Just got my first comment, so that's progress.

Strange re: the pricing.  It's still $4.49 in my browser.  Are you writing from outside of America?


Yes, I'm outside America but have to buy Kindle books from amazon.com since there is no amazon in my country.

I enjoyed your reviews!

Funnily enough, the 4 Hansen booklets together in paper form cost $9.99 whereas a Kindle copy of each lessons costs $8.14. At least that's what I see, although you claim $4.49.

So paper format $9.99 vs Kindle format $32.56.

Add to favorites! Keep up the good work - there is a need for this. Not many reviews combine the view of a solid club player with good knowledge about the chess world (and publishing) in general and a thourghtfull overall approach.

I was thinking about this today - couldn't remember who had announced they were working on it. I hope it flourishes.

(Note: not selling anything, so I hope this doesn't count as cross-promotion!)

I've started a blog devoted to chess book reviews.  The first two reviews - Hawkins' Amateur to IM, and Lars Bo Hansen's What Would a GM Do - are up.  I welcome comments and adulation! Smiley
