The third installment of the best-selling series of attack books - Formation Attacks, Formation Attack Strategies, and now, Positional Attacks is another 500 page book, full of great attack information with 532 fabulous attack games from all openings and all eras. The aim of Positional Attacks is to uncover the artistic side of attacking, one that is primarily centered on the creation and exploitation of weaknesses. Oh sure, there will be tactics; after all they cannot be avoided in chess - nor would we want to exclude them. But there is nothing quite like witnessing chess masters dissect their opponents with smooth, elegant, aggressive, positional attacking maneuvers. And, once again, the games provided in the book came from an in-depth global search for unique, inspirational, and original attacks from some of the world’s greatest attackers. Many of them toil in remote areas of the planet and have only a local following.

May 17, 2014What people are saying about Positional Attacks! Life Master Brian Wall, Denver, CO I knew Joel when he was a systems analyst. He has always been marvelously organized. Joel is a perfectionist who truly believes the games he finds deserve a worldwide audience. He is like a gardener of greenhouse orchids who constantly prunes and replaces his delicate plants for maximum customer effect. Life Master Johnson wants you to be in awe as soon as you breathe his rarefied air. Joel loves his colorful orchid collection so much he resists hundreds of requests each year to put a games index in the back because that would mean so many orchids would have to be left behind. Joel explains things so simply and thoroughly that total beginners are whipping out Grandmaster attacking games in no time. I have never seen any chess coach create so many scary tournament players from scratch. Jesús M. Seoane Sepúlveda, Madrid, Spain I received your new book and this is really wonderful!!!... More > Congratulations for your great work! The book is very nice, well structured and the games are simple amazing! This is awesome! Life Master Steve Mayer, Gilbert, AZ Over the last few years, USCF Life Master Joel Johnson of Phoenix has embarked on a three volume series of books devoted to a variety of methods of attacking the king. The games selected are also remarkable in that they range from games played between relatively low rated class players all the way up to the vaunted Super GM level, with time controls ranging from VERY fast blitz games to "slow play" national championship and Super GM tournaments. There are well over 500 games included in this 500 page book and I can practically guarantee you that that you will have seen very few- if any- of them before. This is true of the entire series and it brings a welcome freshness to the topic of attacking chess. Ultimately, Johnson's series aims to awaken or improve the inner Tal that chess players of all ages and ability levels have. Danielle Rice, Denver, CO I have read the previous two volumes "Formation Attacks' and 'Formation Attack Strategies' by Joel Johnson so I was eagerly waiting on this new volume. I just began reading it over the weekend and it surpasses my expectations. Very well structured with plenty of exciting games. Stephen Dann, Worcester Telegram, Worcester, MA Joel Johnson's new "Positional Attacks" has it all.< Less
