It's based on the title and the write up, and a very strong suspicion that someone is implanting the fundamental points of constructivism and passing them off as their own, which is the sort of thing those who write books on chess lower themselves to all too often.

Using your same academically rigorous thought processes perhaps you could inform us on the nature of the following book cover? :lol:

lol, would rather not as double-entendres are more of a pet peeve than a speciality.

I've just had a copy of the book delivered in the post.
I started to read it yesterday and I am enjoying it.
It is an excellent book.

Very funny Nick.. :lol:
I was looking the other day at our game we played in the U171 Major Section of the Scarborough Chess Congress back in 2012.
I thought I was a bit fortunate to win.
Hope to see you again at this year's Scarborough.
