Review: Jon Speelman’s Chess Puzzle Book

The question might well be asked, “Is there really a need for yet another tactics puzzle book?” In fact, author Jon Speelman asks this very question in the first paragraph of his introduction to Jon Speelman’s Chess Puzzle Book. The British GM answers by pointing out, “There is a fairly simple message which is worth hammering home: tactics is a combination of vision and calculation; both are necessary and neither is obvious.”

For the rest of the review, including three puzzles from the book, see the ChessCafe book review home page. You can also find it in the permanent book review archives.
