"I liked the pictures, with their gentle humour sprinkled throughout. Along with the clean presentation of the puzzles, it makes for an attractive book all-round... Initially I didn't find any (of the puzzles) especially difficult, but they quickly became more challenging, and the trickier ones are marked as such."GM Luke McShane, New In Chess "The cartoon characters from the cover appeared throughout the book which I - as well as my kids - found appealing. But don't imagine this isn't a serious work: the hardest test positions are as tough as any from Neishtadt."GM Daniel King and Ronan Bennett, while adding Tactimania to The Guardian's Book of the Year shortlist
