This first book in the Mastering Mate series presents a challenge for players relatively new to chess and for readers seeking a novel and interesting set of puzzles.

Every one of the 1,111 positions in this book is from an actual game. Each position has a single, unique solution. And all of the solutions have been carefully checked.
