View all copies of this ISBN edition:

This text is written particularly for the practical player but will appeal to anyone interested in the beauty of chess in all its forms. With superb examples, it examines unusual aspects of the game, thereby developing the reader's understanding and appreciation of spectacular chess ideas. It should lead to an improvement in combinative vision, and in one's ability to surprise one's opponent. It is an eye for dazzling combinations and an instinct for the paradoxical that has helped players like Alekhine, Tal and Kasparov to surprise and overwhelm their opponents. A well-tuned aesthetic sense not only motivates top players, but also confers upon them a decisive practical advantage. David Friedgood is an International Master of Problem Solving, he is also Problems Editor of the "British Chess Magazine".
