Tim Brennan and Anthea Carson are back!
The best way to improve at chess is to solve tactics puzzles.
Tim and Anthea only take positions from genuine amateur games and put them out there, warts and all.
They have assembled thousands of games by everyday players, and selected the most instructive tactical examples.
If you want to improve at chess but have limited time and energy available, this is your book!
Now you can study positions that are happening in games you yourself might have played.
Tim and Anthea's promise: no composed problems, no endgame studies, no puzzles that you have seen before!
Praise for Tactics Time I:
Grandmaster Alex Fishbein:
ôThese problems are not contrived - they are the types of tactics likely to occur in a real game. Tim Brennan and Anthea Carson made sure to include diverse positions; you will find opening checkmates and pawn endings.ö
James E. DuBois, ChessCafe:
"Tactics Time is right on the mark for its intended audience, say, for players rated up to 1200 or so."
Sean Marsh, CHESS Magazine:
"Ideal for juniors and inexperienced club players wanting to build up their solving confidence and to learn some new tactical ideas along the way."
