In 1970 by the All-russian chess club the book of A. Kotov "Secrets of chess-player thought" was let out, getting wide confession of simple chess enthusiasts, and also among chess-players of high qualification.
V.M. Malkin responded aboit it so: "This book is in a great deal unique: perhaps, first in chess literature author made attempt to expose a chess from within: to show, how grand master conducts party, what principles he follows, counting variants, finally, what he endure at play and how manages the emotions. Here is all: and then wonderful examples from practice, and then collision of different plans, but main - exposure of principles, which these plans are created on, their mechanism".
With reverent respect behave to the author and his work, therefore tried to copy an original, changing nothing absolutely. Added only lines for reproducing of party on a board, little diagrams in some places (in fact I did for own employments) and answers for exercises.
