In his latest work, How to Crush Your Chess Opponents, Williams again focuses on attacking chess with an impressive collection of tactical slugfests. Nearly all of the games feature the kind of kitchensink attacks that end with spectators crowded around the board. Surprisingly, however, the book has a lot to say about defensive play as well. After all, a defensive inaccuracy is the seed of every tactical firework. As a cautious player, I found it especially satisfying that after twentynine games of merciless attacking chess, a player best known for his defensive prowess gets the last laugh. The book closes with a win by Ulf Andersson, one of the game's alltime best defenders.How to Crush Your Chess Opponents' subject material makes the book ideal onthego chess reading. The games are short and juicy. Many of the games deserve careful study, but the lazier reader will find gratification as well. There are plenty of diagrams to showcase the knockouts. I especially enjoyed Polgar Berkes, Gormally Sutovksy, Ivanchuk Shirov, Wells Habu, Cordoba Andersson, and the classic Short Timman (this one has been analyzed extensively elsewhere, but white's epic king march should earn the game a place in any book on attacking chess). Beyond these massacres, Williams provides a final section on "Playing to Your Strengths." He again presents sharp, attacking games, but here the analysis is especially enjoyable. Beyond the lengthy variations, Williams discusses the psychological aspects of the games. Game 27, Plaskett Murshed, 1997, is my favorite. Playing to one's strengths is a subject I hope Williams writes about in future works.
