The best book that I have read in the last year on the topic of chess are:

Bobby Fischer Goes to War

The Life and Games of Mikhail Tal

Grand Strategy

How about you?

Peace,
Nate

I liked Silman's Reassess Your Chess, as it was the first book I read and gave me some nice strategic pointers. Unfortunately for my chess playing, poker soon followed, and I can't make money playing chess.....

True, but that doesn't mean you have to stop playing entirely. I haven't been doing much of either lately as I have picked up and moved back to China again but as things start to smooth out I plan to start playing again. I still play chess on Gameknot and find it doesn't require that much time to still play and maintain 10-20 games at a time.

Regards,
Bill
