Chess Self-Improvement

England
Zenon Franco guides readers through 50 top-level games, challenges them to guess key moves correctly, and poses questions at critical moments.

Points are awarded for good answers, and at the end of each game, a score-chart rates the reader's performance. This material has never appeared in the English language before, and represents the pick of monthly articles that Franco has written for a quarter of a century in Spanish-language magazines, revised and rechecked for this book.

Zenon Franco is a grandmaster from Paraguay who now lives in Spain. He is an experienced chess trainer, his most notable pupil being Paco Vallejo, now one of the world's top grandmasters, whom he taught from 1995 to 1999.

GM Kavalek - Washington Post

"An Impressive Book
Readers unfamiliar with the works of Zenon Franco have plenty of catching up to do. The grandmaster from Paraguay, who now lives in Spain, wrote three excellent books for Gambit Publications. After Chess Self-Improvement and The Art of Attacking Chess, Franco recently came up with Grandmaster Secrets: Counterattack! His discussion of the delicate subject on how to bounce back from difficult positions is both enjoyable and instructive. One can still learn a lot from Emanuel Lasker's tenacity in defense and José Raul Capablanca's art of simplification, but examples of modern players, such as Kramnik and Carlsen, are also presented. Overall, it is a great book for tournament players." - GM Lubomir Kavalek, Washington Post

"...the author knows not only his historical but also his contemporary sources, and is able to introduce a topic (not only counterattack, but also psychology in chess) in a subtle but compelling way. ... the book consists of much more than just classic games. It's a guide to all possible ways of countering an attack, such as simplification and prophylaxis, logically ordered by theme, each followed by lots of good exercises. ... a truly interesting book not only for people who want to improve their game, but also for those who simply like classic games analysed by a contemporary grandmaster. ... depth and insightful explanations go hand in hand." - Arne Moll, www.chessvibes.com
