Using classic board situations arranged in chapters by tactical themes, Seirawan teaches readers how to:
>Plan the entire game from the very first move
>Think ahead, step-by-step, anticipating every obstacle opponents can throw their way
>Position themselves for the smashing combination and endgame they have always dreamed of
Board positions from actual games played by history's great,chess tacticians are provided throughout. Review tests for each topic let them track their improvement. In no time they will be playing better, with more confidence than they ever thought possible.
