Chess-related References

Sometimes I go through a book.  Mostly, I read/refer to a number at a time...


Three Hundred Chess Games - Seigbert Tarrasch ( Recommended to play through as a basis for ideas and patterns )
Rubenstein's 100 Games - Hans Kmoch ( Likewise to p[lay through for basic patterns and ideas )
Réti's Best Games - Golombek ( Réti's best games and endgame studies, as well as a brief biography)
Masters of the Chessboard -  Richard Réti ( Biographies and games of 1920s-30s chess masters with guidance. Dated at times, but a significant impact when first published )
Essential Chess Endings - James Howell ( Covers commonly occurring endgames )
The Fascinating Reti Gambit - Thomas Johanssen ( A great gambit, 2 b2 versus the French, with similar ideas against the Sicilian )
Why we lose at Chess - Colin Crouch
Pawn Sacrifice - Timothy Taylor ( I always liked his Chess Cafe columns. This is a collection of them, but also updated and with new material )
Improve your chess now - Jonathon Tisdall ( recently re-issued. A good improvement manual but dedication needed)
Win with the London System - Sverre Johnsen & Vlatko Kovacevic. ( It does what is says, covering London variations in detail )


ChessTempo - For Tactics and Opening Trainings
The London System  Nigel Davies - Very useful in the days when I played d4. Davies is a good explainer
Building a d4 Repertoire Nigel Davies - Useful to switch from the London/Colle/Zukertort to the Queen's Gambit
Chess Assistant 11 - Exceptional database software. Sadly not updated in 10-15 years and these days unlikely to be.  Aquarium is the complementary software from the same company for Analysis.
Chess Position Trainer 5 - This was an almost perfect Opening training application, however it has not been updated in years. Still well worth using, but it has a few quirks. These days I use the ChessTempo opening training, although it is not as useful as CPT5
