In this easy-to-read pocket-sized guide, McDonald concentrates on the fundamentals of middlegame play, including attacking and defending the king, good and bad pieces, and strong and weak pawn formations. At the same time, McDonald is careful not to swamp the reader with too much information. He provides simply enough material so that you can enter this part of the game with the knowledge and confidence you require. Concise Chess Middlegames is a perfect addition to McDonald's other two books in this series: Concise Chess Endings and the best-selling Concise Chess Openings.
