This beautifully written and well organized book is not a primer. It doesn't discuss openings, make suggestions to improve your game or suggest a better defense for Ruy Lopez. It simply demonstrates the beauty and aesthetic value of the game. It points out the pleasure--as the title suggests--and complexities of each piece in a game of chess. I find myself re-reading it and deriving additional pleasure each time. I strongly recommend it to anyone who loves the game or think they might.

Profiling Poker "Nitwits"

By G. Ed Conly.

Privately Printed, 2003. Paperback First Edition, unstated. Fine in Wraps: binding square and secure; text clean. Virtually 'As New'. NOT a Remainder, Book-Club, or Ex-Library. 8vo. 156pp. Edited by Renee Warner. Cover Art by Robert Kuczera. First Edition, unstated [2002]. Paperback: Pictorial Wraps. I was looking for a book that gave me insight into the strange thinking processes of my opponents when I came across Profiling Poker Nitwits. Conly goes into great depth in myriad aspects of what makes people think the way they do. I found after reading this book that I looked at people with a new ability to figure them out, and more easily predict the way they play. I was amazed at the detail with which Conly was able to disect different personality types and all the other things that make a person do what they do. He lays out his techniques for "profiling" people clearly, and makes you think of things that you've never even considered. I've been able to make better decisions, especially early in a session when I first encounter a tough situation against someone who I don't know at all. I highly recommend this book and also recommend reading it more than once. I know I'll get something new out of it each time I read it!
