More on Chess Books

As I said yesterday, I believe that when it comes to chess and book learning, it is better to know a few books in depth than many books normally. Here’s my chess library:

For knowledge:

Reassess Your Chess by Jeremy Silman
Chess Endings by Jeremy Silman
Mastering the Chess Openings by John Watson

To practice analyzing moves, a couple cheap Fred Rienfeld books
1001 Checkmates
1001 Chess Sacrifices

Collection of Master Games
500 Master Games of Chess by S. Tartakower
1953 Candidates Tournament by Bronstein

That’s it. I figure if I know these books thoroughly, then I will be good to go. Right now I’ve been journeying through 500 Master Games.
