    Shows how to take advantage of erros in play

    With the theme of how a strong player takes advantage of weak moves the author gives clear and good analysis of selected games. There are not a lot of books like that as most focus only on games played by top notch players. Another excellent type of book that shows typical mistakes are books on chess opening traps. I also found some of the games in Unbeatable Chess Lessons to use this theme. What could be more helpful than having actual examples of mistakes being made and then showing how to take advantage of them? Be prepared to read descriptive notation, which really isn't so difficult to get used to. After all, it was the most common notation used in the US prior to 1980.

    Classic Game Collection Book: shows how to take advantage of weaker player's moves

    We have some really nice examples of how a Master is going to win against a weaker player. The games contain excellent annotations where the ideas of the moves are clearly explained (though not on a move by move basis). This is an older book so the opening analysis is certainly not up to date. But this is only a minor drawback when considering the main theme of this book is not not to be a book on chess traps or on short games. Not for a beginner but for a player with basic knowledge of strategy to start with. Also, in the old descriptive notation instead of the modern algebraic found in newer books.
