Author: Jeremy Silman
First and foremost, this author knows what he's talking about. As a somewhat advanced-beginner of an adult, I struggle to find books on my level that aren't kid-centric writing but aren't grandmaster thesis either. This book is somewhere in between.
I get frustrated with chess books that calculate out wrong possibilities for you--for me it's the equivalent of having an off-topic sentence in a paragraph, and it can be very distracting when you have to concentrate just to see the CORRECT position in your mind's eye. Silman does this on a couple of occasions, which again is really only proving how well grounded his thinking is, but it can be overwhelming to someone like me.
