Zenon Franco is a Grandmaster from Paraguay, now living in Spain. He represented Paraguay, on top board, in seven Chess Olympiads, and won individual gold medals at Lucerne 1982 and Novi Sad 1990. He's an experienced trainer and has written numerous books on chess.
The Paraguayan is developing a reputation as an excellent author, not least when it comes to general instructional volumes for Everyman's Move by Move series. Planning is one of those topics which often goes unstudied by the club player, but is a very important skill to master.--CHESS Magazine; I can recommend the book very highly as a collection of excellent and often beautiful top level games with first rate annotations. Stronger club standard players, in particular, will find it helpful in improving not just their planning skills but their tactical skills as well. ---Richard James, British Chess News
