Vukovic: The Art of Attack.
I bought this book long ago when it was way beyond my ability....and after realizing that one needed enormous chess calculation and intuition skills to even get through some of the positions I put it down and focused on more appropiate material for my level...well, I have finally made it to the level of a fairly decent player and I have decided to dust it off and do some serious studying of this classic masterpiece.
I was just wondering if anyone out there has graduated from the Vukovic program or has even attempted to work their way through it. I would imagine their level of attacking ability would be fearsome!!! Anyone who has read this book or has any commentary associated with it is welcome to reply.

i played against *a* vladimir vukovic in a canadian open tournament and drew.
he's probably not the same guy who wrote this book, though ;)

It and, My System, underpinned my chess understanding for many of my chess playing years.
The bishop ("h6") sac lines in particular led me to adopt the Colle system to chisel out many a mad thrilling clock-ticking moment !!
A great book - one the shelf for sure :-)

I've been through it a couple of times
got a lot out of it, but I got more out of "300 Chess Games" by Tarrasch. I preferred My Praxis over My System but its the same material.

Perhaps ketchuplover did not understand trachess sentence. I hope there is a graduate here who can make things more clear to us, or is ketchuplover wasting our time?
