Reti's "Other" Classic Ask most chessplayers about the works by Richard Reti, and most will quickly reply Modern Ideas in Chess. His Masters of the Chessboard will be a distant second and that is unfortunate, because in many ways Masters is more comprehensive and instructive than its better-known predecessor. He packs it with advice, even for beginners. Opening theory is a priority. Reti tells the student to understand "the basic idea" of each opening, and goes into considerable detail as he explains each of the popular lines of the day, including, of course, his own Reti Opening. Some of the finest parts of the book are the mini-essays, most of them on openings, but also on rook endgames. It's remarkable that Reti manages to do this without going into long variations. This practical approach is also evident when he deals with positional themes. For example, Masters can be appreciated as almost a primer on the subject of how to turn the two bishops into a significant advantage. As noted by American grandmaster Andy Soltis in his Foreword, this entire book is "wonderfully instructive." And now it is available in a 21st-century edition, with figurine algebraic notation, with many diagrams and photos added.

The Tao of the Chessboard is not about chess although it contains chess puzzles, some cryptic chess jargon and many allusions to the "Royal Game." The Tao of the Chessboard is really an invitation to mastery. There are a multitude of influences converging in this one work: Jewish Wisdom Literature, New Testament literary conventions, Li Po and the Taoist poets, Zen Buddhist images and especially the wisdom of the Tao Te Ching. All of these pieces have been thrown up into the air and have landed on the chessboard to form a coherent whole. These verses invite the reader to a life of discipline and delight. The Tao of the Chessboard also contains two additional works: Forty Years in Haikuand Endgame: Selected Poetry. The former is akin to a spiritual autobiography that is intimately linked to nature and geography. The latter is an offering for the altar of Polyhymnia. DALE SMITH is a perennial student who occasionally earns a degree. He holds a B. A. from Southwest Baptist University (Bolivar, Missouri), an M. Div. from Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary (Fort Worth, Texas) and an S. T. M from Yale University (New Haven, Connecticut). Dale is an avid reader, an amateur chess player and an itinerant preacher. He spends much of his time observing that "sitting quietly, doing nothing, Spring comes and the grass grows by itself." His dream is to visit the lands of Middle-earth and settle down in the Shire. However, he currently lives in Blue Springs, Missouri with Teresa and their halfling, Andrew.

Travel back to seventeenth century Scotland with the first romance in the Highlands series, as a modern woman finds true love across the ocean—and across time. Lily Hamlin has finally realized that her life isn’t as perfect as she once thought. Making a pilgrimage to Scotland, a land she’s only heard about in lullabies, Lily hopes that she can find her place again. But while exploring the Highlands, she discovers an overgrown maze and a strange stone map—and lands in the Lochaber of 1654. Ewen, Chief of the Clan Cameron, is a busy man who must figure out how to save his people from the brutal redcoats and has time for little else. Having sired an heir, the widowed Ewen has no need—or room—for another romance. Then into his life drops a saucy lass with a peculiar accent and no regard for his title. Drawn to each other despite their differences, they both realize that they don’t want Lily to go back to her own time. But with battles brewing between the Camerons, the redcoats, and a rival clan, staying could mean putting both their lives in danger...

Richard Reti was a formidable over the board grandmaster as shown by his victories at the splendid tournaments of Kaschau 1918, Gothenburg 1920 and Teplitz Schonau 1922. His victims included Capablanca, Alekhine and Nimzowitsch, while his elegant destruction of Bogolyubov deservedly won the beauty prize at New York 1924.

Here is the flagship edition of the most popular occult work of the past century, now published with a groundbreaking historical introduction that establishes its authentic authorship and a "lost" bonus work by the original author. It is one of the most mysterious and hotly debated occult works ever written-and without question the most popular and widely influential book of arcane philosophy of the twentieth century: The Kybalion has been credited only to the cryptic "Three Initiates" since its first appearance in 1908. Debate rages over the identity of the Three Initiates, the origin of the book's mysterious title and insights, and the nature of the Hermetic teachings on which it is thought to be based. Now the veil is parted. The Kybalion: The Definitive Edition presents the first full- scale analysis of this work of practical occult wisdom. It features the complete text of The Kybalion and the first-ever publication of Atkinson's previously unknown post-Kybalion work: The Seven Cosmic Laws. In an engaging introduction to this unique volume, religious scholar Philip Deslippe surveys the work's context, history, and impact (including as a source of spiritual insight to communities ranging from New Thought to Black Nationalism), and provides a biographical sketch of its elusive author, the New Thought pioneer William Walker Atkinson. As valuable to new fans as it is to longtime readers who crave more knowledge about Atkinson and his work, The Kybalion: The Definitive Edition illuminates the remarkable history of this long-cherished text.
