Revue de presse
Games are the essence of the book. Their selection is refreshingly original, unlike many other works that recycle highly-publicized contests (a fault of Garry Kasparov's 'Predecessor' series, for example) (...) We don't find the lengthy and convoluted analysis that is featured in most books about attack (...) Thoroughly enjoyable and recommended to every chess fan. --John Watson, The Week In Chess
Where Garry Kasparov likes to hide behind thick trees with variations, Timman always makes sure that the reader fully understands why the game develops the way it does. --Harald Keilhack, Schach Magazine
A well produced book by an author who never fails to impart some elements of his great erudition and insight. --British Chess Magazine
Présentation de l'éditeur
A world famous grandmaster explains the modern style of attacking chess to amateur chess players. Jan Timman teaches how to build up an advantage in the game and how to convert that advantage into an aggressive strategy and into great attacking moves. He has selected the most instructive attacking games of great players like Kasparov, Topalov, Karpov, Shirov, and Judit Polgar in order to explain to amateur chess players the basic ideas of modern attacks and their successful execution.
