PRAISE for Arthur van de Oudeweetering's Improve Your Chess Pattern Recognition:
James Rizzitano, ChessCafe:
“Club players will benefit from this book and master level players are also likely to pick up some new ideas by carefully reviewing the material.”
Dennis Monokroussos, The Chess Mind:
"I think it's an excellent book, and while it's not systematic in a way that would turn it into a primer on positional play, there is no question but that this will improve the positional understanding of many club players. I'd highly recommend this to players rated around 1400 to 2100, and I think even masters can (and will) learn something from this book as well."
