The examples are very well chosen and include plenty of games from 2011 and 2012. The material is very accessible and will suit players of all strengths looking to 'tune their tactics antenna'. Trainers and coaches will find plenty of ideas for lesson plans too. --Marshtower Chess Reviews
This book is very much aimed at practical play: What to look at, how to think, how to find good moves. With exercises for all levels(1300 to about 2100). Very warmly recommended for all who want to get better at tactics!--Oliver Pucher, FIDE Master and chess trainer
One unusual twist: there are exercises that in effect ask whether a combination is actually present. I recommend this book highly.--Paul Kane "Manchester Chess Federation "
An excellent text for intermediate players or advanced beginners.--Steven Goldberg "ChessCafe.com "
Neiman understands the crux of the problem; no one sits at your elbow during a game to announce you have mate in three. You must find these moves yourself. His presentation is clear and readers are sure to improve.--John D. Warth, This title is destined to be a classic... "Chess Club of Southern Indiana "

The approach here is simple: It uses the analogy of a SIGNAL (which are the signs of the EXISTENCE of an element or theme of a tactic). This is something that I feel needs to be developed further with games and tactical exercises. If there are many signals...this increases the likleyhood of a tactic in the current position. Thus the ANTENNA goes up.
I've really dumbed down the book with a short summary, but the way the author fills in the details is a work of art. To benefit from this book you must incorporate the information (etch the method in your hide so its a part of who you are). And the best way to go about this is to work through THOUSANDS of problems (Sharpen your Tactics, Reinfield's 1001 combinations, etc all come to mind). And when working through the problems you must use the recommended thought process outlined in this work.
Here at last _seems_ to be a starting point for those of us who are not blessed with natural tactical vision( or maybe just too polite to know how to see what can be taken advantage of).
In the book , all the previous moves of the game are given for most positions. I don't know if this really helps but it certainly seems that knowing the game context of the tactic should be helpful.
A chapter that reviews the basic tactical themes and checkmate patterns is thoughtfully included.You should already be fairly familiar with these before buying this book. Variations are managable and (mostly)relevant .
Print and binding quality are good. The book is just the right size. My only complaints are 1) the main game notation is in line rather than column format, so it can be a little difficult to read ,2) I needed this 12 years ago and 3) It's very pink.
