I am crap at chess. I spent a lot of money on books that I thought would at least make me competitive. Nothing worked. I think these chess books will all sit in a box gathering dust and one day I might get the urge to rejoin the local club and get butchered by 12 year olds so then may have a further look. (Generic review for all half finished chess books I will never finish)


IIRC this had some useful stuff for the idiot player such as myself.

Interesting chess puzzles. The best part is you don't know what your looking for. Is it a mate in three or a tactical combination? Every piece has to be checked to see what the key to the problem is.
