Name-checking Borges, Foucault, P.T. Barnum, Stephen Pinker and Mao Zedong along the way, Dutch IM Willy Hendriks has written a chess instruction manual quite unlike any other in the literature.
Hendriks appears just as avid to take down some of the game's best-known instructors from the past, including Soviet GM Alexander Kotov (author of the classic "Think like a Grandmaster") and American IM Jeremy Silman, whose "How to Reassess Your Chess" is my go-to recommendation for club players seeking to move from, say, Class C or below up to expert or master.
