This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.


John Brown: The Forgotten Chess Composer? reintroduces a classic chess title to a whole new readership. Chess Strategy was originally published in 1865, and now Brian Gosling investigates the life and work of it’s author, John Brown, selecting 50 of his chess problems to inspire a new generation of chess players.

John Brown: The Forgotten Chess Composer? is not only a gentle introduction into the art of problem solving in chess, but is also a fascinating glimpse into the life and work of an outstanding chess problem composer – in an age before computers. His problems were simple, elegant and accurate and players of all abilities will have much to learn from the chess problems he created, 50 of which have been selected and discussed in this new title by Brian Gosling. 

Chess is a game with worldwide popularity, but the art of problem solving is often neglected by casual players. You do not need to be a chess expert to become a chess problem solver. The challenge is for White to checkmate Black in a specific number of moves, and the search for these optimal moves makes these puzzles highly absorbing.
