Ren de particulier qui justifie un tel prix... Les applications sur l'app store ou des bouquins type Block font la meme chose pour bien moins chers.... Enfin, toujours interessant de travailler la tactique...

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Nicely Choosen Puzzles 18 septembre 2006
L'évaluation d'un enfant - Publié sur Amazon.com
I am a firm believer that tactical work books, books on chess traps in the opening, and going over analysis of instructive games are the best type of books to improve your play.

There are one thousand nicely choosen problmes containing some of the more important tactical patterns that will prove helpful in actual play. I don't like problems that are composed and have patterns that you would never come across in real play.

A suggestion for improving most tactics work books. I would like to see a building of the same tactical pattern. Start of with a simple use of a knight fork, then make it so that the same type of knight fork must be found in two moves, then an even more complicated position that requires ideas to set up that knight fork in 3 or 4 moves!!! Are there any tactics work books that do that with at least 500+ problems? Yet to be seen.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 This is the best puzzle book for improvement for players rated 1700-2000 13 septembre 2006
Par Chess amateur - Publié sur Amazon.com
Highly recommended, the best book for tactical improvement. So why do I only give it 4 stars? The reason for this is that some diagrams/puzzles are repeated in this book. For instance, puzzle 53 is the same as 113, 59 the same as 114. Not good, but I think not only Emms is to be blamed for this, but the whole staff at Gambitbooks. But this shouldn't keep you from buying the book; this is an excellent chess puzzle book for tactical training. My advice about books on tactical improvement depending on the rating:

900-1100 : Chess Tactics for Student
1300-1600: Winning Chess Exercises for Kids
1700-2000: The Ultimate Chess Puzzle Book
2000-> : John Nunn's Chess Puzzle Book.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 REALLY! This is the ULTIMATE Chess Puzzle Book! 22 décembre 2006
L'évaluation d'un enfant - Publié sur Amazon.com
It is all in the selection of the puzzles and their organization. No doubt about it book that teach you tactics that are well written and organized is key to improving to tactical pattern recognition. There are two ways to go about it. Getting books on short games containing traps in the openings (learning tactics and the ideas behind the openings at the same time while using complete short games). Actually that is my favorite way to learn tactics.

The other very good way is to have a book provide tactical problems for you to solve. "The Ultimate Chess Puzzle Book" really has gathered over a thousand positions that contain the most important tactical ideas. They are arranged so that you progress logically. I found the organization and selection of the problems in this book by "Emms" to be far better that the massive "5334 Chess Puzzle" book that had so many problems simply insterted to make it "big". Too many, disjointed problems, not well organized in sequence" I feel is just confusing and is not an efficient way of getting what is important across to the student. Big doesn't mean better! And, around 1000 puzzles is just about the right size! Plenty of problmes, but not overwhelming the student with unimportant materal that is just filler. I recomment to improve your tactics get a good book on Chess Traps (opening tactics) and "The Ultimate Chess Puzzle Book! You will have it all!

4.0 étoiles sur 5 A must have for chess lovers who want to master the game 12 février 2007
Par geofmeister - Publié sur Amazon.com
The book provides clear instructions and you will be able to easily answer the puzzles as the initial sections of each chapter provides useful hints on how to solve them. At the later part of the chapters, there are no hints so you will be able to solve some of them on your own.

It covers all types of puzzles - from easy to very difficult so chess players of all levels can make use of this book. There are also some tests that will allow you to gauge your level in solving puzzles - just don't take the rating so seriously especially if you have already solved some of the test puzzles in the past.

I should have given 5 stars for this book but I just have a slight difference in opinion in puzzle #195. The solution in the book says 1. Bd5!! leading to mate but actually it only gains material and a comfortable endgame after 1... Qxb2 2. Bxg8 Qg7.

White should have won decisively after 1. Rxf5!! Qxb2 (1... gxf5?? 2. Qf6++; 1... Rd7 2. Rf7! Rxf7 3. Nxf7+ Bxf7 4. Qf8+ Bg8 5. Qf6++) 2. Nf7+ Bxf7 3. Rxf7 Qa1+ 4. Kf2 Qd4+ 5. Kf1 Qa1+ 6. Ke2 Re8+ (6... Qe5+ 7. Be4!; 6... Nd4+ Kf2!) 7. Be4!

But overall, this book will help you improve your game. Happy reading! :)

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Warning: Not for Players Below 1800 Elo Playing Strength 29 mai 2012
Par Deaf Zed - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Broché|Achat vérifié
I play both correspondence and over-the-board blitz chess and based on my performance in both, I'd estimate my overall playing strength to be somewhere in the 1500-1750 elo range. Meaning I already have a more-than-solid foundation in tactics despite being neither an expert nor master-level player.

The first section of the book, 'elementary puzzles', wasn't too bad. Only about 5 out of the total 112 puzzles I had no idea how to solve. I ultimately either couldn't solve or got the wrong solution to less than 10 of these. So far so good.
Fast forward to the next section and I started having to consistently skip problems before being able to find one I could solve. I got to around puzzle 200 before I stopped because, on average, I was only able to solve (or even have an idea on how to solve) maybe every other problem. Hence, I've decided this book is a bit too advanced for me and I'm shelving it until I improve a bit more.

In addition, the reader should be warned that for the puzzles that have hints to them, the hints can be confusingly ambiguous. One hint reads: "The game continued [move order given] with an eventual draw. What had both players missed?" The diagram indicates that it's white to move so you'd expect the puzzle solution to be an improvement for white. Except it's not...it's for black. Why couldn't the puzzle start with white already having moved and it being black's turn to play?
What makes this even more confusing is that in other, almost identically-worded puzzles, the improvement IS for the first player to move and not vice versa. So at times, it's never clear which side you're supposed to be improving.

I also have to echo the words of another reviewer (who also rated this 3 stars) in saying that the difficulty from one puzzle to the next can jump quite considerably. I also have to corroborate what this reviewer said about Emms not adequately explaining what the phrase "difficulty level 2-4" actually means.

Overall, I would rate this a satisfactory, though far from perfect puzzle book for its intended audience. However, that audience is decidedly more on the advanced, as opposed to intermediate, side of the spectrum. Hence, I would not even consider this book unless your playing strength is ~1800 elo or above.
