    I had a lot of fun with this book. I liked the fact that it was set up a little differently than most chess instruction books in that the author presented a different theme for each chapter and then provided 20 or so positional exercises for the reader to test their understanding. In this way not only was knowledge built on the basis of work on previous chapters work but also it was possible to "score" the progress made.Along with chapters on tactics and ones devoted to mates in 1, 2 and 3 moves, plus a couple of instructional games, came tips and rules of the game - all in all it’s a fabulous book best for levels from beginner to intermediate. You will learn a lot of solid techniques in a logical sequence and many of the exercises provide a real challenge so the casual player will feel like they have learned something at the end. These exercises are based on the training methods used by the Polgar sisters and so have a genuine logic to them.My score by the way was 501/564, which I’m quite happy with (Damn those pesky mate in three puzzles!)

    This book is great for a beginner to not quite an intermediate player. I do have a lower rank in chess, but have been playing for years. I zoomed through this book in about 2 weeks. I had to push myself constantly to finish it. I did learn some tactics and such. It is well put together. I do have Susan's "Chess Tactics for Champions" book. But dang! This book is rough! The tactics (TO ME) are very challenging and hard. I would also recommend that book as well.
