Book Description"I strongly believe that tactics is a very important part of the game of chess; the conscientious study and application of tactical principles have helped my sisters and me a great deal throughout our careers. I absolutely agree with the well-known maxim: 'Chess is 99% tactics.'

This book offers every type of tactical motif imaginable, from the more common back rank mates, pins, skewers, forks and the like up to and including some of the most beautiful and rare combinations. This is a tactical book that will prove exceptionally useful for a wide range of players, intermediate through master strength and even beyond. I can heartily give this book two thumbs up. It will help you develop and improve your tactical skills tremendously." -From the Foreword by Women's World Champion, International Grandmaster Susan Polgar.

German grandmaster Karsten Muller combines clear discussions of tactical themes with over 600 well-chosen positions to test, challenge and teach. Although the classic combinations are not ignored, the great emphasis is on positions from modern tournament practice of the last decade.

    The man who wrote, "Tactics is 99 per cent of chess," might well have added ? "and 99 per cent of the fun, too!"

    Brilliant sacrifices and combinations, either calculated in advance or played on the spur of the moment, give us thrills that cannot be equaled by any other aspect of the game. And, by a very fortunate coincidence, these brilliant strokes are just what we need to become first-rate players.
