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.
