Format: Paperback
This book is a very enjoyable book.
The Little stories bring to life events and places
you can practically imagine in your mind the grand masters bite their lips in joy or fear.
the exercises are really good and the marking of difficulty makes it easier on you if you fail to find the moves.

1 of 1 people found the following review helpful By Anton on 9 Nov 2011
Format: Paperback
This is the most enjoyable chess puzzle book I have come across. The positions, taken from actual grandmaster and master games, are graded for difficulty, from one star to five. They are all intriguing, some of the winning lines are truly beautiful and the comments are both intelligent and pithy. There are also three great sets of tactical tests at the end (again from actual play). Challenging and - what many puzzle books are not - consistently entertaining. Great stuff.

I have owned this book for years and used to sit on the train to and from work studying the positions. Now that my son plays chess we work through the game endings together and it measurably improves his playing.

my favorite chess book 12 April 2008
By J. Fishel - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
I got this book in high school and studied it heavily for a few years. Then recently, I got it out again having had a reawakened interest in chess. My copy is so worn, corners bent, writing on the pages, coffee stains, and a cracked spine. All the telltale signs of a book that has been studied over and over.

I highly recommend this book to those learning chess and to those who like "real world" type chess problems. There is something for everyone in this book ranging from the beginner to the master.

Fantatsic Combinations 14 Sep 2002
By "bobsie67" - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Perhaps the best book on combinations that I have ever read. All the combinations are beautiful works of art! Watch out! These combinations are not easy to solve. Very lively written.

For fun, it's great. Not very educational, but just a fun book to look through.
