Better Thinking for Better Chess

This book is based upon a directed study in psychology that I did back in 1988 as a part of my Bachelor of Arts in Psychology degree. I conducted some suveys and experiments at three different chess tournaments in the Tampa area and the results of these surveys and experiments are in this book along with my conclusions based upon this study.

I was looking to determine what the differences in thinking are between beginning chess players and intermediate chess players and between intermediate chess players and chess masters. Some of the results surprised me.

I used the outline that was required for psycholgy experiments at the time that this study was done and updated the tables and added some charts to make the data easier to understand. However, if you do not understand how to read chi square tables and you are unwilling to learn how to then you may want to skip over that part of this book.

In this third edition I corrected some spacing and formatting errors that were in the first two editions and have added links to recommended books. Any further updates to content will be in the next volume of this series.

This book is the very first book that Mike Serovey published on Amazon.

La muerte, resurrección y el más allá como se encuentra en el Libro de Mormón y otros escritos de Joseph Smith, Jr. (Spanish Edition)

This report is based on an assignment that I did for a religious study class at the University of South Florida, Tampa Campus. The instructor was Dr. James Strange. This is a brief summary of how Mormons view what happens to people after they die and that there is more than one place a person can go to besides Hell. This report briefly explains what is needed to get into each of the three degrees of glory. For a more detailed explanation of what is in this report talk to an active member of the church. This is a Spanish translation of that report.
