Mikhail Tal was one of the greatest geniuses of chess history. The magician from Riga, as he was known because of his dazzling attacking games, took the chess world by storm and in 1961, at the age of twenty-three, he won the world championship.

His sacrificial style made Tal immensely popular with chess players all over the world. In this book Grandmaster Karsten Muller and chess journalist Raymund Stolze have created an instructional chess tactics guide by investigating and explaining the secrets of his breathtaking combinations. Moreover, the authors have selected from the games Tal played one hundred exercises which will teach amateurs how they can finish a game with a stunning sacrifice.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Spectacular chess from history's most creative grandmaster 31. Dezember 2012
Von Christopher J. Falter - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
I love to study the chess of Mikhail Tal, because (in his prime) no one--not Fischer, not Kasparov, not Alekhine -- could summon forth the hidden possibilities in the 64 squares. The spellbinding play of "the wizard of Riga" propelled him to the world championship in 1960 at the tender age of 22, a feat unequalled until the advent of Kasparov. Naturally, his games provide an eye-opening perspective on how open lines, outposts, piece coordination, and rapid attack can burst forth from mundane positions. So when I received this latest work on "Misha," I wondered: would it deliver real value from Tal's imagination? Or would it be just a hastily written assemblage of generalizations?

I am happy to report that Karsten Muller and his writing partner, Raymond Stulze, have crafted a wide-ranging and challenging work that will benefit and entertain all but the raw beginner. The core of the book is 100 puzzles based on key positions from Tal's games, divided into 4 sections:
* Warm-up - primarily combinations that lead to a quick win
* Sound sacrifices
* Speculative sacrifices - whose compensation is not necessarily sufficient, but nevertheless set the game on edge
* Defending against Tal's attacks - where a subtle move can refute Tal's attack...but can you find it? I appreciate that Mueller helps us learn defense as well as attack.

Each section concludes with the puzzle solutions. Mueller analyzes the concrete variations that justify the key move, often all the way to the conclusion of the game. So we do not have just 100 puzzles with key moves, but almost 100 illuminating game fragments to boot.

Mueller begins each section with 2 or 3 annotated games that illustrate the theme. The annotations are accurate and helpful, and include plenty of explanatory prose with the variations. Each section ends with an interview with one of Misha's grandmaster colleagues, who share anecdotes about the friendly and spunky Tal along with an annotated game. Most of the annotated games are 1 - 2 pages in length and include a couple of diagrams. The book includes 18 annotated games and about a dozen more game fragments not associated with a puzzle, which would comprise a pretty decent game collection in itself.

I had seen a few of puzzle positions previously, but the vast majority were new to me. It is clear that Mueller did a lot of hard work, rather than simply collating the work of others.

I can't promise that you'll gain 100 rating points by reading The Magic Tactics of Mikhail Tal, but you will enjoy some spectacular play and expand your chess horizons. Highly recommended.

The publisher provided a review copy of this book to me in exchange for my honest review. My ratings of the publisher's books have ranged from 3 stars to 5 stars.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Superb 13. April 2013
Von Pardu S Ponnapalli - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
Mikhail Tal is my favourite chess player. He played because he loved the game, not to earn titles. His passion and love for the game comes through in his adventures at the board.
This book is one of the few to capture the personality and flavor he brought to the most pedestrian positions by usually engaging in an explosive tactical strategy that completely confounded his opponents. I particularly enjoyed the opinion of other grandmasters.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Very good book 19. Januar 2013
Von R. Romero - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch Verifizierter Kauf
This is one of the very best books ever written on Mikail Tal. The human side as well as the great games and brilliance of his play. The authors are very objective and present chess as it really is in the tournament circuit. Tal's combos were not always perfect but it is refreshing to see the authors pointing that out in some of his combinations and piece sacrifices where a defense was available but Tal's opponent would crack under the terrible pressure Tal would put you under. All in all a superlative work on a very great Chess player. Bravo!

I love this book.
I am very interested about the character of the player.
In this book they have a great balance of exercises and
real personal details from numerous players, that describe their personal encounters with Tal.
This makes it a very special account of Tal's legacy.

3.0 von 5 Sternen Still looking for a book that would do Tal's genius justice... and this is not the one 19. August 2015
Von Andrey Terekhov - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Taschenbuch
This is a very uneven book. It does have beautiful combinations and incredible sacrifices - after all, it is about Tal, the ultimate wizard of tactics. However, it does have quite a few flaws.

First of all, I was disappointed with the purely chess content of the book. Most of the time, the games are given without annotations, until the moment that the key combination or attack took place. Even then the annotations are brief and often quoted from other sources, such as Tal's own books, or Kasparov's "My Great Predecessors" etc. The full score is missing for about half of the games.

A big chunk of the book is devoted to personal reminiscences about Tal by people who knew him or played against him. These came from the interviews that were taken specially for this book, usually centered around one or few games that the interviewee played versus Tal. The book is clearly influenced by the fact that it was written by German authors, so about half of these interviews come from German players (the other half is former Soviet players). To my taste, there were too many references to Germany. It felt a little odd, as if I was reading "Tal through the eyes of German chess players". A lot of space is also given to explaining the peculiarities of chess life in Soviet Union. This was not really interesting for me, as I experienced it first-hand, but I guess that it could amuse the readers that grew up on the other side of the Iron Curtain.

Another oddity that I need to mention is a chapter about the game Tal-Keller, which was written by Grandmaster Huebner. It is indeed a famous game with wild complications that has been analyzed again and again. Dr. Huebner is doing what he does best, filling 40+ pages with countless variations. However, the contrast between Dr. Huebner's extensive annotations (taking up almost 15% of the whole book for just one game!) and rather scanty comments in all other chapters could not be starker. I am not sure how many people actually find the courage to get through Dr. Huebner's analysis, but it sure stands out as something really different, almost alien from the rest of the book.

This book still makes for a few hours of entertaining reading and challenging tactical riddles. And yes, Tal's games and combinations are immortal, so a book about Tal can never be bad. However, I was not completely satisfied with this one. I think that it could be an OK introduction for someone who never read anything about Tal, but there are probably very few chess players that fall into this category. Even in that case I would probably suggest to start with Tal's own "Life & Games". Another possible use for this book could be as a set of puzzles for someone who wants to train his or her own tactical vision, but I think there are better books for that purpose as well.
