In this comprehensive package, Dan explains something as simple yet complex as thought process, and how it’s applied correctly and (incorrectly!) in chess.  He explains how to evaluate, analyze, calculate, and use judgement and memory.  This collection on Thought Process and general improvement comes with 42 videos for you to relish and enjoy.

NM Dan Heisman explains everything that happens after your opponent makes a move until you make yours.

The thought processes that lead you to make decisions while playing a chess game. It is extremely important to be able to guide your thought processes towards the right direction, when you are faced with crucial decisions.

Strategy and step-by-step instructions to improve your game are the keywords of this formative and not-to-be-missed series!

What is it about?

This bundle includes some of the highest quality training material Dan Heisman has ever produced, aimed at all levels of play, although especially valuable for the intermediate and club players.

Dan Heisman’s teaching is all about process. You don’t just learn what to do in a common pattern and hope it appears in your game. You learn how to find the right idea in any position.

  • I'm very happy thus far with this product, I had the chance to watch some videos, and I can sense the approach by Dan Heisman. I know that he's a great teacher and his knowledge is transferred in a zestful manner.
  • Mr. Heisman is a chess teacher par excellence, and this series showcases his teaching ability. He is clear and logical in his presentation of concepts. He gives a lot of great coaching tips and advice throughout. I particularly like the way he demonstrates sound chess thinking as he presents thematic material or as he comments on games. This series covers a wide range of topics that would be beneficial for most players. Highly recommended!
  • Dan Heisman is a master and a maestro, that is an excellent teacher. I was a bit disappointed by the technical quality at first, but the standard of the teaching and the content of the lessons soon overcome that. Technical support was also excellent, as I had some trouble downloading.
