He tackles questions such as: whether to play main lines, offbeat openings or universal systems- how to avoid being move-ordered- how to use computers- if and when to depart from or change your repertoire. Giddins argues that from novice to grandmaster, a players basic task when choosing a repertoire is the same: he needs to select openings that suit his playing style and that he can play with confidence. The repertoire should not require more memory work and study than he is capable of, or has time for. The book is rounded off with a look at the use of role models and an investigation of the repertoires of leading players past and present.
