    Excellent vaue for the price

    Burgess has created an outstanding all around chess book here. Well written with easy to understand explanations this book includes puzzles that will challenge every chess player short of a Grand Master. If you are serious about increasing your knowledge and understanding of chess, I recommend this book and 'Art of Attack in Chess' by V. Vukovic.
