    Book DescriptionThis is a penetrating study of the attacking methods of the most aggressive chess players of the modern era-from 1960s world champion Mikhail Tal to Magnus Carlsen, teenage leader of today's new wave of deadly attackers. The attacking style is a good choice for any chess competitor, but especially for less advanced players, who will relish the fireworks it produces. The first book from one of the UK's leading Grandmasters, this unique guide is illustrated with a wealth of examples from top-level games.

    Daniel Gormally is one of the UK's top grandmasters. He represented England in the Chess Olympics in 2006 and has published articles in the world's top chess magazines New In Chess and Chess. This is his first book. He lives in Alnwick, Northumberland.
