Book Description "Chess is 99% tactics" is an old saying. This may be an exaggeration, but even the remaining 1% still depends on tactics.

When FM Martin Weteschnik started working as a trainer in his local chess club, he quickly realized that even the stronger club players had great weaknesses in their tactical play. He also discovered that simply asking them to solve a huge number of puzzles did not fix the problem.

These players clearly needed a good book, but when Weteschnik looked for it he found nothing suitable, so he decided to write it himself. To his surprise, the book quickly became very successful in his native Germany, where one reviewer called it an "instant classic."

But Weteschnik was not completely satisfied with the book and decided to restructure and rewrite it completely. This is the book you now hold in your hands. If this book cannot improve your understanding of chess tactics, nothing will!
