Edwards, Jon: Mastering Mates 1 (PB)
Train Your Brain to Recognize Checkmates!
This first book in the Mastering Mate series presents a challenge for players relatively new to chess and for readers seeking a novel and interesting set of puzzles. Books on chess tactics can overwhelm beginners and young learners.
These relatively simple, carefully chosen exercises serve to illustrate the wide variety of examples of checkmate, as well as showing off the harmonious cooperation of chess pieces delivering the final blow.
You will certainly learn what checkmate is and how to deliver it. And you will learn how chess pieces can coordinate their influence on the board.
Every one of the 1,111 positions in this book is from an actual game. Each position has a single, unique solution. And all of the solutions have been carefully checked.
