Needs downloadable diagrams

Audible was good but with out diagrams you only get half of what you pay for. Would recommend paperback version not audible.

No diagrams?

This seems book seems like it’s full of easy to understand, sound advice. It’s well-paced, kinda crash-course level instruction about different strategies. Well-read, good voice, which is mostly why I picked it. But without the diagrams, it’s really impossible to learn anything concrete from the given examples. Also, most of the reviews on this book seem fake. 5 stars across the board for a chess book that doesn’t include diagrams...and many have been double/triple posted. Audible check that out, seems sketchy.

Unbeatable

You can be unbeaten, yes you heard it right . At least no one would not beat you if you have the fundamentals and follow the tactics properly.
