"A nice follow-up from Chandler to his two existing volumes on tactics: How to Beat Your Dad at Chess and Chess Tactics for Kids. Going through these positions will help you to develop a feeling for tactical patterns, and this will help you in the end to become a much better chess player" - John Elburg, chessbooks.nl
"This book is a continuation of Gambit's best selling series of instructional books aimed at junior players. The previous volumes are Chess for Children, How to Beat Your Dad at Chess and Chess Tactics for Kids, all of which were covered in my first review column, back in 2005. There are lots of books for juniors on the market. So, what does this one bring to the table? The 100 positions are arranged by theme, such as Attack on the Castled King and Back-Rank Combinations. Each numbered lesson is presented on a single page. The clarity of the presentation makes the book very easy to navigate and makes it an excellent volume for chess coaches to use with their students. Despite the title, I think this book has a potentially wider audience than just youngsters...
Club players may find some of the positions of use too, as quick warm up exercises just before a game. It's a very enjoyable book, enhanced by quirky illustrations by Cindy McCluskey (look out for ''Arabian Mate'' and ''The Rook Lift'' ) and bound in a sturdy hardback cover." - Sean Marsh, marshtowers.blogspot.co.uk
"Grandmaster Murray Chandler writes excellent books for kids who already know how to play. I like his latest work...it expands on his two previous books How to Beat Your Dad at Chess and Chess Tactics for Kids. In all these works Chandler presents the mating and tactical patterns in such a clear and entertaining way that it is a joy to read it. And as I said before, it is not only for kids." - Grandmaster Lubosh Kavalek, Huffington Post
"Teachers, mums and dads, children who are beginners, and beginners who don't want to stay beginners, should stop and browse here. Most of the games are recent and at the back, as if you haven't suffered enough, are thirty test positions... an excellent Christmas present." - James Pratt, British Chess Magazine
