A sacrifice, Sokolov argues, is the natural product of the initiative. This explains why the author devotes a substantial part of the book to this most elusive element of our game. With great clarity he teaches when the initiative is at stake and how you should grab it.

Ivan Sokolov is an International Grandmaster who was born in Bosnia in 1968 and rose to the number 12 spot in the FIDE world rankings. He was Yugoslav champion in 1988 and Dutch champion in 1995 and 1998.

In his rich career Sokolov has beaten world chess champions Garry Kasparov,Vladimir Kramnik and Viswanathan Anand. His previous books The Strategic Nimzo-Indian, The Ruy Lopez Revisited and Winning Chess Middlegames were widely acclaimed bestsellers.
