The Gambit Book of Instructive Chess Puzzles by Graham Burgess
Solving tactical puzzles is one of the most effective ways to improve your chess. This convenient book provides 300 exercises, with instructive points highlighted in the solutions.
There is something here for everyone. The first 50 puzzles are based on a clear-cut tactic or checkmate, such as those explained in Gambits best-sellers How to Beat Your Dad at Chess and Chess Tactics for Kids. The 50 endgame challenges highlight tactics and demonstrate endgame principles in action. In practice it is vital to avoid tempting but disastrous moves, and to defend resiliently, and there are innovative chapters on these rarely-covered themes.The last two sections will prove a stern challenge even for the best players, with the reader exposed to the full complexity of modern chess decision-making - though with a few helpful hints along the way. 50 of these puzzles are drawn from the Gambit vaults, with startling points spotted by Gambits authors and editors over the last twelve years.
