basically its the same product, but with games and instructional material that is supposed to go along with his new book, The Art of Learning.

however a lot of the new games are not his own and a lot of the material feels... forced.
what i mean is maybe the idea does not necessarily match up with the ideas he explained in his book, such as "Using Adversity" ( a concept where you have to accept external circumstances to make the result in your favor).

he doesn't even use his own games as examples. the games chosen for the subject arent even very good ones, because one of the games were played by Morphy, an opponent nobody could play against in his era. how can there be "adversity" when Morphy owned everyone at chess?

anyway this product packages basically every chessmaster into it, so even with this odd addition to chessmaster, its still a solid purchase (unless you have the older edition, then you might want to reconsider a product that only adds about 7 more of his own games with a ton of fluff).
