Und wie schaffen wir es, die Warnsignale besser zu erkennen? In diesem Buch gibt Rowson in seinem originellen Stil eine Fülle von Denkanstößen, und zwar auf ausgesprochen unterhaltsame paintings. Er untersucht hier, was once dazu führt, dass Schachspieler bisweilen die schrecklichsten Fehlentscheidungen treffen, und er beleuchtet dabei die tückischen psychologischen Ursachen für solche Fehlentscheidungen: Denken (überflüssig oder Fehlerhaft); Blinzeln (Auslassen von Chancen, Unentschlossenheit); Wollen (übertriebene Fixierung auf das Ergebnis); Materialismus (Vernachlässigung immaterieller Faktoren); Egoismus (mangelnde Berücksichtigung des Gegners und seiner Chancen); Perfektionismus (Neigung zur Zeitnot, Verbissenheit); Fahrigkeit („Den Faden verlieren“, gedankliches Abschweifen, mangelnde Konzentration).
