Common Sense in Chess
A ChessCentral E-Book
Lasker's Common Sense in Chess has always been one of the standard works in chess literature, enjoying a place on the "short list" of required reading for over 100 years. Simply stated, the book records a series of lectures given by Emanuel Lasker, the 2nd World Chess Champion, before an audience of London players in early 1895. Yet Lasker's statement of his chess philosophy, his clear presentation of the principles of chess play, has elevated these lectures to a place far beyond the mere fulfillment of a speaking engagement. Here we have a classic and timeless guidebook that has benefited generations of chess players. Anyone who has learned the rules of chess will be amply repaid for his study of Lasker's Common Sense in Chess.
