Format: Paperback
A superior puzzle book with entertaining introductions.I could not solve some the puzzles so I had a peek at the helpful hints which means everyone has a good chance of success. I bought another book by Mr Lane called 'Find the Checkmate' and they go together well.

Format: Paperback
This book was recommended to me after a friend saw me messing up game after game by failing to spot the winnign move. I am not that keen on puzzle books but this one is easy to read. The obvious puzzles from other books are missing so I was challenged for most of the time. And dare I say it but it has made a difference to my play because I have started to play winning combinations.

Format: Paperback
I seem to be a little behind the times having only just discovered this little gem of a book. For once I did not spy all the standard puzzles which appear in the newspapers. These were largely new to me and the little hints while at times obvous helped to make the whole exercise most enjoyable.

Improve Your Chess 9 Aug. 2004
By Joe Black - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
There is one obvious way to improve ability at chess and that is to try tactical puzzles. This can be dull but for a change the standard, tired format has been revamped. Gone are the obvious, old puzzles and in comes a galaxy of games played in 2004 and short nuggets of information before each diagram. It makes learning fun.

Well Written Book 7 April 2006
By Narayan - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
This is a simple well written book with over 400 puzzles. However I felt the puzzles were too simple. The tactics are rather straightforward, so if you have been playing the game for a while you should get most of the solution in under a minute. So if you are looking for brushing up ur tactical skills this is a good book. For advanced tactics this is not recommended.
