I am considering buying either of the one two. For those who have these two books which do think is better?
I have been read this two books and the two is good to help us on our improvement at chess. But I suggest the How to become a deadly chess tactician by David Lemoir? It will helps you to calculate deeply and know the basic patterns in tactics.
I think How to be a deadly chess tactician is more expensive than the first.
haven't read storming the barricades but How to become a deadly chess tactician is excellent.it'll improve your calculation skills...highly recommended.
Storming the Barricades doesn't really teach. It's more like an inspirational collection. Although Chritiansen's other book, Rocking the Ramparts, is a good beginner's book on attacking principles.
Never heard of Street Fighting Chess. But I like the title. Reminds me of street fighting. And chess.
