I Also Recommend:
It starts by explaining what a simple fork is and why it works mathematically. It moves on to much more complex multi-piece diagrams and shows what a piece can capture and when a piece is fully protected. It uses Geometric postulates and Algebraic proofs to show why a piece is protect or not -- including x-ray formations and more. The end of the book shows the rule of the square for whether a pawn can "queen" when the side opposite only has a king. Then it takes that concept a bit further.
It is an amazing book for those who understand geometry and algebra well. It open my eyes to several things I now apply at the board. If math is not your "thing" avoid this book. You would most likely get nothing but frustration from it!
