352 Seiten, 451 Diagramme, kartoniert, 1. Auflage, 1996. This new edition of a classic work will introduce a new generation of readers to the wonder of chess problems. A chess problem is not a position from a game of chess, but rather the crystallisation of a composer's spectacular idea. You do not need to be an accomplished player to enjoy the positions and ideas in this book - only a knowledge of the basic rules of chess is needed. Nevertheless, it is no coincidence that good solvers are often strong players - the British Solving team includes Grandmasters Nunn and Mestel.
