    Old book on general strategic ideas with some valuable material

    "Chess Strategy" by Lasker was actually written well before the publication date shown. Though, very dated, the book contains a moderate amount of material that is still useful today. You may find the old "English Descriptive" notation tedious if you are used to algebraic notation. Some of the selected material used in "Chess Strategy" is quite instructive and for the price this is not a bad book. If focusing on more useful material for study where price is secondary in importance there are better books available such as (for Advanced Beginners), "Chess for Everyone", (for those beyond advanced beginner), "Unbeatable Chess Lessons", "Logic Chess" and "Winning Chess Traps" for learning general strategy and tactics. Any of these would be better if you are planning to study chess on a more serious and long term note.

    This book is available for free!

    Don't pay money for this! Get this public domain ebook for free from many sources online, via project gutenberg.

    It is an excellent book, and was written in 1915 (2nd edition).

    Nothing Special - Decent Book with a variety of insights into selected stratregies

    Overview: The author takes varies parts of strategy that he feels are important and covers them at a moderate level. The book is written for a player of intermediate playing abiliy. ***Strong points: Some of the selected themes (mostly middlegames) are very helpful in helping improve what many chess players are weak on. ***Weak points: Be prepared for English Despcriptive Notation, which can hinder some players. Several concepts could be better explained (perhaps something lost in the translation?) as the writing is not very clear at points. Openings are very outdated. Conclusion: There are better books available on general chess strategy, and I also recommend going over games turned into lessons type books to learn general strategy. This is at best an average book on strategic concepts.

    Not as bad as some say

    This book is one of the better bargin books! It is a very general book on some of the more common chess strategies. Yes, a bid dated, in english descriptive chess notation, but still a bargin because the actual material is good.

    General book on chess strategy

    A lot of important ideas ranging from openings to endgames are touched on along with certain middle game concepts. Written in descriptive notation, this may be a turn off to some, but if you don't mind descriptive notation this is a decent book except for the openings (they are very outdated).

    Good bargain, but...

    This is considered a classic, but I personally didn't get that much out of it. On the upside, Lasker is instructive at teaching a few strategic ideas, explains opposition well, and gives some nicely annotated games. The downside is that the opening section seems dated and the writing is dull. Presentation is very important in a chess book, and Lasker doesn't organize his ideas very well.
