This was the first part of a three-part series - the other two books being Play Like a Grandmaster and Train Like a Grandmaster. Kotov - and this book itself - have been a little controversial in the chess world. I also doubt that most strong chess players think in such a rigid and computer-like way as Kotov suggests that one should aspire to. Nevertheless, I still think it is a good book and was very influential for me. I think I was in a particularly obsessive phase when I was reading it, because I highlighted many parts of it and also underlined things. I can remember writing things that later seemed to me to be stupid, which caused me to cover them up with white-out.
