    I was wondering if anyone has read " Forcing Chess Moves " , by Charles Hertan ? If so is it worth buying?

    Every tactics book is worth buying.

    But...with that book the answers are right beside the problem so that sucks.

    Go get "The complete chess workout"...It has 1200 problems and the answers are in the back of the book.

    Sorry, not me. I did read a couple of reviews, and the reviews seemed favorable. But I'm afraid the book is probably over my head. John Donaldson stated, "FORCING CHESS MOVES, which is neatly laid out with crisp clear diagrams, will be useful for players of a variety of strengths, but the target audience is likely players 1800-2200."

    As a lower rated novice, I think that leaves me out. I'm not worried, though, since I already have enough tactics books for lower rated players to keep me busy for quite a while.
