What I liked most of all about this book is that Cheng frequently shows you positions that look tactically promising, tempting you into attack. Often these tactics don't actually work because of the tactics against you! These problems certainly make you check and double check the position, just as in a real game. I thoroughly recommend this book to all budding intermediates ...
One of the best books of exercises for actually learning to think rather than by rote.
Lovely simple presentation.
The problems are not arranged into themes, but are presented 'raw', with more complex problems next to more simple ones. The idea is that readers will develop their real (playing) chess strength rather than merely their problem solving strength. As the author points out, real games do not come with "black to play and win using a fork" inserted at the board for help.
Possibly better for developing rather than beginner players.
I'm only of a weak / moderate club playing standard and this book is more than challenge enough for me.
Overall, the books is really really great! Somehow low price, good paper quallity!

I would recommend this book only if you are already a competent chess player and looking to expand your experience.Published on 8 Jan. 2014 by Wrs
This is kind of a disposable book in so far as you can pick problems and spend as long, or short, an amount of time as you like working through each problem. Read morePublished on 14 Feb. 2013 by dave
