Kurzbeschreibung

Most chess puzzle books put you in an artificial situation: you are told a combination exists, what the theme is and what you are required to achieve. This one is different. In a real game, a player may sometimes need to find a combination. On the other hand he may have to reject a tactical idea and simply find a good positional move. His task is to find the right move, whatever it may be. The 300 puzzles in this book put you precisely in that situation. Spectacular ideas abound in these positions, but it is for you to decide whether to go in for them, or whether you would be falling into a trap. If you need them, there are hints to help you on your way. The book ends with a series of tests to measure your skills against those of other players.

For this new edition, John Nunn, a top-class grandmaster and a solving world champion, has added 50 new puzzles (with hints and detailed solutions) to test your skills to the full. For ease of following, extra diagrams have been added to the solutions throughout. Overall the book is 60 per cent bigger than the first edition.

Dr John Nunn is one of the best-respected figures in world chess. He was among the world's leading grandmasters for nearly twenty years, winning four gold medals in chess Olympiads and finishing sixth overall in the World Cup in 1989. He is a much-acclaimed writer, whose works have won 'Book of the Year' awards in several countries. In 2004, 2007 and 2010 Nunn was crowned World Chess Solving Champion, ahead of many former champions.

Synopsis

John Nunn, the four-times chess Olympic gold medallist, presents 250 chess puzzle positions, with solutions and hints. The book includes a series of set tests which readers can use to compare their talents with other players.'

Format: Taschenbuch
I love solving exercises for training purposes and pure enjoyment, and I own nearly a dozen books devoted to tactical chess. So, I really needed a compelling reason to buy another tactics book. I found Nunn's treatment of tactics to be different in that Nunn's focus is on evaluation of a position, calculating and analyzing, rather than simply finding the "brilliant" or trick move that forces a mate. In other words, unlike beginner tactics books (say, Reinfeld's 1001) where there are hundreds of queen sacrifices forcing mate, Nunn's examples are more pragmatic and needing of careful calculation. Of interest is Nunn's background info on tournaments of the past - so we aren't simply solving problems out-of-context - which is fascinating. If you're a player, rated 1400-2100, you'll probably find this book extremely useful for long-term problem solving abilities. Other good books on this subject include "The Best Move" by V. Hort and Jansa, and "Test Your Tactical Ability" by Y. Neishtadt.

This is a good book. I think that Upper lever Intermediate andespecially Advanced players would benefit the most. There are bettersuited books for lower rated players. Don't be afraid to challenge Nunn's solutions. He did a good job testing the problems, but he (and Fritz) are not perfect...

Liebhaber von Schachkombinationen und allgemein von überraschenden Lösungen des Stellungsproblems werden hier auf ihre Kosten kommen. Man merkt es dem Buch an, dass der Autor eine Menge Arbeit in die Auswahl und Analyse der vorgestellten Partiefragmente investiert hat. Sehr interessant und zu eigener Analysearbeit einladend ist ein spezielles Kapitel über das Schachniveau am Anfang unseres Jahrhunderts. Ich persönlich finde, dass es das bisher beste auf dem Markt befindliche Buch auf dem Gebiet der Schachkombination ist. Leider,wie die meisten Schachbücher, nur im Paperback.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Emms book and this are both good 4. August 2002
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Unlike John Emms' "The Ultimate Chess Puzzle Book," which I strongly recommend for most anybody, this is not meant to be a tactics book. A previous reviewer apparently missed the point of this book, simply comparing the number of puzzles to judge the content in those 2 books. Nunn's book deliberately keeps the reader from expecting what is coming, thereby simulating the true game environment. This approach wouldn't necessarily get your pure tactical skills up, but if you look at the benefit you will gain in your overall play, this book is definitely worth its price.
One more note...there was a comment that "Not to mention Emms is a bettr player than Nunn ever was or will be" in a previous review, but that is simply not true. John Nunn hovered around #10-15 in the world during mid-80's, while John Emms has yet to break into top 100.

4.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent, but be aware that this is an advanced puzzle book 29. Juli 2006
Von Chess amateur - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Most of the puzzles in this book are for advanced players. For instance if you get 50 % score from Nunn's test, your calculated rating is 2144. So this is a very tough chess puzzle book, players over rating 2000 will benefit most from this book. If you are below this level (1700-2000 in rating), try Emms "The Ultimate Chess Puzzle Book" instead. The layout and size of this book could be better, with larger diagrams etc. as in Emms book. Therefore I give it only 4 stars.

My advice about chess books on tactical improvement depending on the rating:

900-1100 : Chess Tactics for Student
1300-1600: Winning Chess Exercises for Kids
1700-2000: The Ultimate Chess Puzzle Book
2000-> : John Nunn's Chess Puzzle Book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen A Great Puzzle Book: Not Your Usual "White To Play And Mate" 28. Juni 2001
Von Ein Kunde - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
I have to differ with a previous reviewer's misguided opinions. John Nunn's Puzzle Book is different from most puzzle books. Nunn's problems are generally much harder and less predictable; they all have lengthy solutions in which non-forced quiet moves and non-captures are frequently embedded. This isn't a collection of brilliant sacrifices where the player makes the most spectacular capture with check leading to a forced move variation; tactical drills are best sought elsewhere.
I admit the publisher's advertising blurb could have been more clear ("Most chess puzzle books put you in an artificial situation: you are told a combination exists, what the theme is, and what you are required to achieve. This one is different") because, as the previous reviewer notes, "all puzzles books put you in artificial positions!" However, presumably the reader of a puzzle book - unless he's been dropped on his head as a child -knows there are combinations in the book.
Nunn clearly writes "one cannot disguise the fact that there is "something" in the position, but I do not see why the challenge should be made even more artificial by giving away further information." The previous reviewer seems to think that Nunn contradicts this statement, breaking "the book's promises," by providing background comments (as well as specific hints in a separate section for the baffled) for the puzzles. However, if you can solve a problem from comments as cryptic as "White has a number of promising attacking continuations, but how can he force immediate resignation?" or "It takes some time to grasp what might be going on in this totally weird position. What should Black play, and what should the result be?" then you should be writing puzzle books, not buying them. Simply ignore the comments and look only at the diagrams if you want no "help."
The previous reviewer writes "Nunn gathered the material for this book from old Informator issues and some of his own games... Do we really need a puzzle book then?" implying that the puzzles were already published and Nunn is simply repackaging them as new and his own. In fact, Nunn writes the puzzles were based on his own unpublished analysis of Informator annotations, along with personal game notes and an analysis of two tournaments (Karlsbad 1911 and 1993 Biel). The previous reviewer basically concludes that finding and solving on one's own the puzzle in any game is best and that "Puzzle books, even good ones like Nunn's, rob the reader of this discovery." Nonsense! Nothing prevents one from analyzing games on one's own - if one so chooses - in the meantime, there are a number of interesting puzzles in John Nunn's Puzzle book.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Entertaining And Enlightening Treatment Of A Common Subject 2. März 2000

5.0 von 5 Sternen Last tactics book you'll ever need 20. August 2010
Von chungking - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
These puzzles are wonderful, and they are hard. For me (USCF 20xx), even the easier ones are to be attempted only over the physical board with some serious concentration, not from the book while riding the bus. This book should not be confused with Fred Reinfeld's 1001 Combinations.

I was just proud of myself for finding five (I thought) tricky tactical moves, leading to a position in which "White's attack must be decisive." Well, it turns out that my five moves were just the lead in to the real meat of the exercise, and when you work it through another half dozen moves to the bitter end, White loses. That's the level of rigor this book requires - or, on the positive side, can help you develop.

If you are a strong club player looking for a great selection of analytical exercises, this may be the last book you'll ever need. Seriously, there is enough quality material here to last a long, long time. A little humbling, yes, but in a good way.
