    Wow, the chess authors just keep cranking out the tactics books! I haven't even heard of that one.

    Does the book give a recommended rating range? Also, in the answer sections, does it only give the moves, or does it also give some explanation?

    Edit - Well, I now have three tactics books (and one PC tactics program), so at some point I'll have to say enough is enough. Not sure if I'm going to get any more of them, regardless of how good they are.

    Incidentally, I was perusing the local bookstore chess section and saw this book, opened up to a random page, and there was a position from a David Tebb game! Unfortunately, he was on the losing side. The book itself looked decent though.

    I've sent a copy of your comments to Richard, hes a great bloke and just wants people to get as much pleasure out of his books as possible. He played for my chess team in Bradford with the same name as my handle during 2000 to 2004.

    I second that...he did some online coaching for me via the coaching section of the website www.improveyourchess.com...I was really impressed and learned bundles from his annotations of my games. Particularly impressive was his ability to pitch his comments at my level without any hint of tedium.
