På engelsk, 366 sider, udgivet 2018
- med undertitlen "Master Pawn Play in Chess"

Forfatterens udgangspunkt for denne yderst lærerige og underholdende bog er vores børnelærdom: et bondetræk kan du ikke tage tilbage på samme måde, som man kan med officerernes træk. 

Shankland bryder principperne for bondestrukturer ned i letforståelige praktiske retningslinier, hvor vi alle kan være med. Vi lærer også hvordan vi skal provokere modstanderen til svækkende træk.

En retningslinie kan være: "In a closed (or semi-closed) position where you are stronger on one side of the board and weaker on the other, it is often a good idea to try to provoke your opponent to make a hook on your stronger side"

Du får 4 gode kapitler. 
Stilen er letforståelig. Shankland forklarer hellere hvad der foregår, end at forfalde til at bringe lange computervarianter. 

Min vurdering af målgruppen: har du 1800 i rating eller derover, så kan bogen løfte dine evner til bedre at vurdere bondestrukturer.

Om forfatteren: amerikansk stormester. Trænes af Jacob Aagaard. Deltager på det amerikanske OL hold med en individuel guld medalje og en hold guld medalje. Vandt det amerikanske mesterskab i 2018. Dette er hans første bog, men en lovende en.

Anmeldelser:

5/5 Stars “A beautifully produced hardback… Shankland wins me over by illustrating these guidelines beautifully… All in all, an excellent, original book.”

GM Matthew Sadler, New in Chess

5/5 Stars "In the present book, Grandmaster Sam Shankland discusses pawn play, especially the implications of having far advanced pawns and how to provoke or force them to be pushed too far. There is also a discussion of doubled pawns from both your own and your opponent's perspectives.

The book accomplishes its goals very well and the discussions are enlightening even if suited for stronger players in the intended readership. For players of at least 2000 Elo strength it will certainly provide first-rate instruction, but for those rated below that it may be a little complex at times. Nevertheless a self improvement manual well worth studying!"

Carsten Hansen, American Chess Magazine

"An intimate, unvarnished interrogation of a strong Grandmaster’s mind at work, and a clear articulation of the pragmatism at the heart of contemporary chess praxis. It is a fascinating first effort from the new US Champion, and I sincerely hope that the promised second volume soon sees the light of day."

John Hartmann, Chess Life
