Solving tactical problems is one of the best ways to improve one's game. This book contains 1001 diagrammed puzzles, beginning with 100 relatively easy positions and ending with 100 mind bending challenges. The remainder lie in between these extremes and are a mixture of themed puzzles and graded tests (no clues!).
The puzzles here have been selected by analysing many games in search of original positions. Even hardened solvers are unlikely to have come across these positions before.
