The Art of Defense in Chess

The Art of Defense in Chess - Andy Soltis The Art of Defense in Chess is a very heady book -- Soltis delves deeply into defense, positional play, counterplay and all sorts of other chess gems. My edition is unfortunately still written in descriptive notation, so I don't open this book as often as I should, but when I do I'm sure to find a great game by Petrosian or a clever defensive tactic that'll probably pop up in one of my own matches.
