Solving in style - 2a mano
In this book, John Nunn, a top-class grandmaster who is also one of the world's finest solvers, explains the methods by which chess problems and studies are solved. The logical and creative methods advocated, while targeted at the solving of composed positions, may also help players find startling tactical solutions in their games. Solving in Style also constitutes an entertaining and insightful introduction to the world of problems and studies. There are chapters on series problems and other unorthodox stipulations, and also a discussion of specific themes such as the Novotny interference.
This classic text is one of few on this important subject, and is now available again, having been difficult to obtain for a decade. Chess positions for solving are as old as the game itself, and provide stimulating and beneficial exercise for chess-players. However, while there is an abundance of books on chess puzzles, and much specialist literature on studies and problems, there is an astonishing dearth of guidance for solvers.
Dr John Nunn is one of the best-respected figures in world chess. He was among the world's leading grandmasters for nearly twenty years, winning four gold medals in chess Olympiads and finishing sixth overall in the World Cup in 1989. He is a much-acclaimed writer, whose works have won 'Book of the Year' awards in several countries. In 2004, 2007 and 2010 Nunn was crowned World Chess Solving Champion, ahead of many former champions.
"None of John Nunn's books has ever disappointed me. If you want to study chess compositions, I really recommend this book. " - Helmut Conrady, ROCHADE
"It discusses and explains all sorts of problems and is an excellent introduction to problem and study solving. Highly recommended" - Paul Dunn, AUSTRALIAN CHESS FORUM
"This is an excellent introduction for those players who have yet to discover problems" - Nigel Donovan, WEEKEND CHESS
"Verdict: a welcome reprint of a classic book; this is the best introduction I know to an appreciation of the art of the chess problem and composed study." - Phil Adams
"...Nunn explains logically, step by step, the mental processes by which the solutions are reached... It is a guide book rather than a stuffy text book. Not many chess books stand the test of time, but this is one exception" -Alan Sutton, EN PASSANT
"A reissue of this classic bestseller from John Nunn ... for chess problem aficionados and endgame study enthusiasts. Nunn pays a lot of attention to the theme of Interference - you'll be amazed how many possibilities can be eliminated by offering a piece on a certain square..." - Bab Wilders, Nederlands Dagblad
"Nunn does an excellent job of explaining the special rules of this parallel universe, but where he is likely to gain the most converts is in the field of chess studies...Many of these studies look sufficiently 'game-like' that the over-the-board player will have no trouble appreciating the beauty and ingenuity involved. Highly recommended" - John Donaldson
