    Predator at the Chessboard which is www.chesstactics.org is now being published by Lulu (what ever that firm is.) I saw it on the first page of chesstactics. Two volumes for $19.98 each.

    Has anyone seen this or ordered it?

    I read so many people on forums recommending chesstactics.org but I don't like to read books on the computer.

    Anyone?

    I doubt it. But why not to mention that site and the printed edition of it ? That site is fantastic and it's not rival to RHP by any means since it is not playing site, it is a learning site, so you can play better RHP games !

    yes i bought it, the first volume, the best tactics course i have yet to study, why, because you just do not get a whole bunch of problems, but you are taught how to think properly. the actual thought process when considering tactical moves. best tenner or whatever it cost i spent.

    all the problems are per as the site, its just kind of good to have a book, i dont know why?

    Because net is crap. Nothing like a real book. And reading books on PC is annoying and not too good for one's vision.
