Watson has written another great chess book!!
Chess Strategy in Action is Watson's companion volume to his award winning work, Secrets of Modern Chess Strategy. In my opinion, the companion volume is just as wonderful as the first volume. Watson has in-depth narratives about every major theme of modern chess. I especially enjoyed the chapters: The Surrender of the Center, The Flank Pawns Have Their Say, The Positional Pawn Sacrifice, and An Edgy Day and a Sleepess Knight. Not only does the companion volume provide many complete-game examples of the themes discussed in the first volume, it also contains new theoretical material. Thes two books have immensely increased my love and appreciation for the game of chess. They are the kind of books that you will revisit for a lifetime. I highly recommend both of these works and believe they constitute a major contribution to chess theory.
