    Useful, well-structured practice book.

    Books of this sort were recommended to me by a master chessplayer (Peter Dyson) for practice in visualization. I chose this one because Pandofini's endgame course book was excellent. The book is indeed quite good. I like the way the book is structured: each chapter has problems that require one more move of lookahead than the previous chapter, which can quickly give you a feel for where your lookahead or memory skills begin to falter. There are a few errors, unfortunately, usually in specifying which side is to move, which is easy enough to deduce, but one of my students also found an alternative solution not mentioned in the answers. I found the book ideal for giving me something useful to do during long pauses between phone calls at work, since it's much less annoying to interrupt a chess puzzle than the flow of a novel. P.S.: Exactly 85% of the solutions in the book begin with a check, so if you're having trouble finding a solution, remember that you may be facing one of the rarer 15% that start with a 'quiet move'--an aspect that gave both my students and myself some problems.
