Chess positions for solving as as old as the game itself, and provide stimulating and beneficial exercise for chess-players. However, while there is an abundance of books on chess puzzles, and much specialist literature on studies and problems, there is an amazing dearth of guidance for solvers. In this reissue of a classic text, John Nunn, a top-class grandmaster who is also one of the world's finest solvers, explains the methods advocated, while targeted at the solving of composed positions, may also help players find startling tactical solutions in their games. "Solving in Style" also constitutes an entertaining and insightful introduction to the world of problems and studies. There are chapters on series problems and other unorthodox stipulations, and also a discussion of specific themes such as the Novotny interference.
