I have finally broken down and decided to buy a few chess books; however, I only have a limited amount of money to spend. Therefore, I have come to a dilemna between choosing Winning Chess Tactics or Winning Chess Strategies. Which book would you choose if you could only select one? I especially ask those of you who have read one or both of them. I am leaning torwards Winning Chess Strategies but I'm willing to try either.

I have the first three books from that series in my library, and although the Tactics book is good, I think you'd be much better served with a collection of puzzles to work through periodically, which as has been stated by others as well, you can get online for free.
Thanks for the posts. I'll probably go for the strategy, but I won't be sure until I buy it tomorrow. Thanks again.
