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.

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.

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.
