JOHN NUNN’S CHESS PUZZLE BOOK
208 pages (210 mm by 145 mm).
Most chess puzzle books put you in an artificial situation: you are told a combination exists, what the theme is and what you are required to achieve. This one is different. In a real game situation, a player may sometimes need to find a combination. On the other hand, he/she may need to reject a tactical idea and simply find a good positional move. The task is to find the right move, whatever it may be. The puzzles in this book put you in precisely that situation.
