Arthur van de Oudeweetering (1966) is an International Master and a chess trainer from the Netherlands. He has written regular columns for chess news websites ChessVibes and Chess.com, and is a frequent contributor to the New In Chess Yearbooks.

James Rizzitano, ChessCafe:
"Many of the chapter titles are very helpful for remembering the theme (..) IM van de Oudeweetering has done a good job identifying and classifying instructive middlegame positions by theme. Club players rated between 1600-2200 will benefit from this book and master level players (2200 and up) are also likely to pick up some new ideas by carefully reviewing the material."

Uwe Bekemann, German Correspondence Chess Federation:
"Very practical and perfect for self-study. The book is written in an entertaining way, working with it is a joy (..) Suitable for beginners as well."

Dennis Monokroussos, The Chess Mind:
"I think it's an excellent book, and while it's not systematic in a way that would turn it into a primer on positional play, there is no question but that this will improve the positional understanding of many club players. I'd highly recommend this to players rated around 1400 to 2100, and I think even masters can (and will) learn something from this book as well."
