by Emmanuel Neiman
New In Chess
If only life was as straightforward as a book of chess exercises! If only someone would tap you on the shoulder every time the moment to demonstrate your tactical skills arrives!
However, the reality is that during a game you are on your own. Nobody will whisper in your ear when you have reached a position that is, in fact, a tactical puzzle and all you have to do is solve it.
Emmanuel Neiman offers help. He has identified a number of signals that will tell you that somewhere in the position you are looking at there is a tactical blow just waiting to be found. what you need is a way to read those signals. What you need, and what Neiman helps you to acquire, is a Chess Tactics Antenna.
In this trail-blazing book, Emmanuel Neiman presents the seven main signals that help you to determine the moment you must start looking for a win. He also teaches you, with lots of instructive examples, how to interpret those signals and how to find the killer move.
Emmanuel Neiman is a FIDE master who teaches chess in his home country, France. He has written several highly successful books on chess tactics and chess training. With his co-author Yochanan Afek, he won the 2011 ChessCafe Book of the Year Award for Invisible Chess Moves.
