Great for beginners, but...
am 1. Dezember 1999
I have to disagree with some of the previously posted reviews here. While this book is quite good for beginner/intermediate players (under 1700), it's really quite useless for more advanced players. Luckily, Laszlo Polgar has written two further books in the same format as this one for more advanced players. The titles are "Chess Middlegames" and "Chess Endgames", and both have over 4000 positions to play through. Moreover, the great majority of these positions are not one move solutions, but full-length (up to 30 moves) game continuations. The best way to learn chess is through pattern recognition, and Mr. Polgar has done a great job in his other books. I have yet to see this book on amazon.com, hope they have it soon. Until then, however, the only place to get it is at the chesstalk.com website. By the way, I'm a strong expert class player, so my comments are geared towards other players of similar strength.
