PostPosted: Thu Jun 15, 2006 7:14 pm 
Written by Eugene Znosko-Borovsky in 1959.

I bought this book a long time ago because it was cheap and highly recommended. Some of the reviews says it's like a tactics primer, and some say it is recommended for players rated above 1800 !

I'm currently rated just below 1300 even though my friend who is a very good chess player, says I have some chess skills (mostly strategy knowledge and openings), like a higher rated player (about 1500).

Would anyone recommend this book to me or is it to advanced ?
I've read Seirawan "Winning Chess Tactics", which was'nt very challenging to me.

Thanks....

In the third edition of his ""How to Reassess Your Chess", IM Jeremy Silman relates how his rating went up hundreds of points after reading "The Art of Chess Combination" by Znsoko-Borovsky.

I recommend "Sharpen Your Tactics" by Lein, et. al. It contains over 1000 problems to solve and each is graded by difficulty.
