Transpo Tricks in Chess  A transposition in chess is a little like a bait-and-switch marketing ploy. The customer thinks he’s getting a bargain on one piece of merchandise, but he ends up buying another at a much higher price. In the first book devoted to chess transpositions, New York Post columnist and acclaimed chess author Andy Soltis shows how this strategy works over the board. By transposing a series of well-known moves (i.e., making them in an unfamiliar order), a player leads his opponent into an unfavorable position that he would normally have shunned. Using entertaining examples from the games of the masters, Soltis covers a variety of transpositions in virtually every kind of opening: double e-pawn, Sicilian, the Reti, English, Indian, and others.

This is not just another chess book. This is a book that gives you different moves against some of doing the same defenses. For example the double e- pawn opening, or the Sicilian defense. These are just two but the author breaks down all of the standard moves and take an in depth look into the pros and cons of traditional and his new way. If you like to play chess then this is a book to at least take a look at if anything it will get you to think differently and that is what we need to do some times. To make the person we are playing against think what is he going to do next? He is not playing like he or she normally does. Advantage you. That is what I got out of this book. I got this book from net galley.
