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)
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)
An excellent text for intermediate players or advanced beginners.
(Steven Goldberg ChessCafe.com)
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.

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)
