chess tactics from scratch - Weteschnik
When Martin Weteschnik started working as a trainer at his local chess club, he quickly realised that even the stronger club players had great weaknesses in their tactical play. He also discovered that simply asking them to solve a huge number of puzzles did not fix the problem. These players clearly needed a good book, but when Weteschnik looked for one, he found nothing suitable and instead decided to write one himself.
The first edition of his book, Understanding Chess Tactics, was hailed as a modern classic and this expanded and improved second edition offers more puzzles to develop players' tactical chess skills.
Who should read this book?
