This week on Chess Journeys, I spoke with the legend himself Ben Johnson. Ben is the proprietor of the Perpetual Chess Podcast, How to Chess, and his new substack blog the Perpetual Chess Link-Fest https://benjohnson.substack.com/. The episode starts with a checkin on Ben’s improvement progress. It’s been an up and down journey for him during the last year. This week, we focused mostly on books. We went through each rating band and suggested books that have worked for us as trainers and improvers. Ben has reviewed many chess books and his expertise is boundless. We also answered a wide range of questions about chess books. I will make a page with all of the recommendations on the Patreon page for the podcast. It will be accessible by all.
