This book is a collection of over 200 problems that focus on recognizing the threats that your opponent is making and responding with the best preventative actions before it is too late. The format is simple: A position is presented, and the threat and its prevention are described below. The reader must identify the threat (i.e. cover up the answer and figure it out), and then determine the best preventative move. The solutions in the book describe why certain responses are better than others.
