    Indispensable for learning the basic attacking strategies and tactics against castled and uncastled kings. Great chapter on the f7 and h7 bishop sacrifice attacks.

    http://www.chessgames.com/perl/chessc... I put this collection from the book on Chessgames site. You should still read the book. 8) There is alot of fun stuff for an aggressive player with info as to when is it valid to start an attack. I think this is for 1400 player up. One of my favorite chess books. http://www.chessgames.com/perl/chessc... I put this collection from the book on Chessgames site.

    A classic finally available in Algebraic notation! This is THE treatise on attacking in chess. However, defensive specialists should also study it, so that they know how their opponent is going to attempt to attack and how to prevent those attacks. Weak squares, sacrifices, castled position... it's all here.

    Even as a beginner I think I got alot out of this book, probably will continue to do so for a long time. Re-reading every so often as you improve you get more insight into attacking chess detailed in this book. Excellent and highly recommended.

    This is a great guide to the offensive, no matter what the state or stage of the game. The best follow-up i can think of to josh waitzkin's "attacking chess".

    Шедевр шахматной мысли. Однозначно, ещё не раз перечитаю и проработаю.

    I have basically annihilated people on lichess in under 20 moves because they are completely caught off guard by sacking my rook or my bishop or knight or whatever it takes to mate my opponent. After going through many of these exercises and reading the excerpts via Chessable, I play completely differently now.

    Another "must have" for any chess player. This was a game changer for me. My games were always too defensive and passive. This book really helped me break out of this counter-productive mindset. The part about attacking the uncastled King was especially instructive and I really think I have won many games based on the less I picked up here. My only complaint is that I wish there were more graphics/chess boards. Otherwise though it is probably my single most favorite chess book out there.

    Read first 32 pages and chapter on mating patterns. Found the combinations too speculative for my level.

    I credit this book for helping me create some of my favorite loses - after reading this book I have been all about attacks and sacrifices. Some of them have even worked!

    Too high up for me right now I think (I'm ~1600 USCF). I'll come back to it later and re-read it.
