Default Gambit Book: How to use Computers for chess

My new book about computer chess is out now. Questions about the content are


Computers have permeated almost every facet of modern chess, yet few players
know how to gain the maximum benefit from working with them. Computers
function as playing partners, opening study tools, endgame 'oracles',

databases. Kongsted provides practical advice on how to use computers in all
these ways and more. He also takes a look at the history of the chess
computer, and how its 'thinking' methods have developed since the early
days. The book features an investigation of human vs. machine contests,
including the recent Kasparov vs. Deep Junior and Kramnik vs. Deep Fritz
matches, in which honours ended even.
