The much awaited sequel to the best selling book, “Formation Attacks”, has arrived. “Formation Attack Strategies” is another 500 page book, full of great attack information with 579 fabulous attack games from all openings and all eras.
The games provided in the book came from an in-depth global search for unique, inspirational, and original attacks from some of the world’s greatest attackers. Many of the them toil in remote areas of the planet and have only a local following.
Let me introduce you to attacking players like Guy West of Australia, Marc Esserman of Boston, MA, Liu Wenzhe of China, Kevin Seidler of Denver, CO, Manuel Bosboom of The Netherlands, Dharshan Kumaran of India, Padre Murphy of Ireland, to name a few.
The book also contains discussions about many attack philosophies, attack strategy and planning, identification and exploitation of weaknesses, and so much more. If you are one of the many people who love my last book, you will be ecstatic about “Formation Attack Strategies”.
