The Ultimate Chess Puzzle Book
It is generally agreed that one of the best ways for a chess player to improve is by studying tactics - and the best way to do that is by practicing. This book provides a wealth of puzzle positions to test just about every facet of your tactical skills.
The puzzles in this book have been selected by analyzing games new and old in search of original puzzle positions (rather than simply trawling through previous puzzle books, as is all too often the case). It is therefore very unlikely that even seasoned solvers will recognize many of these positions.
Emms, by allying his skills with those of powerful computers, has also made every effort to ensure that the solutions are sound, and that there are no unmentioned alternative solutions.
The book begins with over 100 relatively easy positions suitable for novices, and ends with 100 extremely tough puzzles, which will provide a mind-bending challenge even for top-class players.
There are 1001 puzzles in all!
