This work has been critisized for being misnamed, but even so, it is a bargain. The book is basically several articles each followed by excellently culled positions to ponder and solve. The work claims to be aimed at professional coaches and players, but serious recreational players are sure to find the material useful. My only criticism is about the placing of the words that indicate that the puzzle is a black to play puzzle. This though is a small thing that one gets used to. I think most serious players will like this work.

Imagination in Chess will greatly improve your chess playing skills, especially in the area of visualization. It is very practical, fun and simple to use anywhere and anytime, because you don't need a chess board. It will also help develop and sharpen your calculation and evaluation skills. It will train you for real chess tournament competition. I highly recommend this awesome book.
