Overview

“Give me six hours to chop down a tree and I will spend the first four sharpening the axe.”- Abraham LincolnThere’s no escaping the fact: if you want to win chess games, you have to attack at some point. Many players are happy solving combinations in winning positions, when the hard work is already done, but the key to a successful attack undoubtedly comes much earlier. No-one can attack effectively if they haven’t prepared properly, and yet planning in chess can be a difficult technique to master, even for experienced players. This book provides a solution. Using an abundance of illustrative games and examples, Gary Lane answers the questions which constantly puzzle players of all levels. Where are my opponent’s weaknesses? Do I have enough pieces in the attack? When should I strike? Do I need to sacrifice? Should I cash in or continue to attack? Read this book, discover the answers and attack with confidence!An essential guide to attacking chessIntroduces easy-to-learn techniquesFocuses on planning and strategy

This si a book that I bought to browse but ended up reading it from cover to cover. I felt that where it differed from my other books on attacking play is that the examples were almost always new to me and the writer actually understood my level. In the past there is an asumption by the author that everone is a master and can see everything at one. Mt Lane is the ultimate guide providing insight and instruction in an agreeable manner.For intermediate players this book is perfect as a reminder and inspiration of how to plan attacks in the middlegame (and even some opening theory), and at the same time improving general chess understanding. Highly recommended - a hugely enjoyable collection of games and puzzles.
