Being the Director and Head Coach of Webster University Chess Team, I am always looking for ways to help my team in their chess journey. As computer have clearly changed the way chess players work in the last decade, their use in chess analysis naturally interests me.
I had the opportunity to work with Andrea Manzo, co-author of The Computer Chess World, and teacher of a course at Webster University, for which this book is the main textbook. During this course, we learned many interesting concepts regarding the way engines work. Most were previously unfamiliar to me, yet they were quite important! We were also given specific and practical advice on optimizing chess software and hardware.
Overall, I find this book interesting and useful for all kinds of chess players.
