Grandmaster Lev Alburt, a three-time U.S. chess champion, is a sought-after teacher and coach who has worked with students of all levels and ages. He lives in New York City. Larry Parr is a former editor of Chess Life.From Booklist:
Great is the disappointment to the library patron who browses for a chess instructional and finds only picked-over bones from the pre-Fischer, pre-Kasparov eras. These books by a U.S. champion and a chess magazine editor offer something more. A range of abilities, from novice to entrants in a local tournament, can learn tactics and strategies that improve their play. The authors drop the obsession with "book knowledge" about elaborate openings. More than 98 percent of games, they say, turn on tactical dangers and opportunities about two moves into the future, and for that distance of foresight, the Russian secrets the authors share consist of a series of questions players must ask themselves after each move. "Chessercizes," with hundreds of diagrams, provide practice for analyzing attacking combinations and defenses against them, from opening through endgame, making this a great contemporary resource. Including tips about computer programs. Gilbert Taylor
