    Lets get ready to attack.

    Some say chess is 99% tactics so it makes sense to seek to improve his part of your game. There are lots of new ideas and tip that are easily absorbed thanks to the clear and friendly style of writing. It is aimed at the improving player so my level at 1600 is certainly suitable and the evidence that it work is clear to me because I have gained 200 points and I have to confess the book was certainly an inspiration.Lots of good games, puzzles and advice make it an an excellent guide to those want to be better.
