I have a chess tournament coming up in a month. I want to get a book that would give some great ideas on attacking. Any suggestions? I love Mikkhail Tal games. He is my favorite player of all time.
A tactic book:
Infact he cannot lean new opening or anyghing special, but in that month he can look for tactics to learn some pattern traps, or do a lot of puzzles to train his board view.
Currently im reading this book and i find it amazing:
Pitty nowadays its too expensive ( its quite an old book), but if you can find it cheaper, i will highly suggest it. It starts with really easy puzzles but gradually it become harder and harder. THe order of the puzzles is not random. THe puzzler repeat a tactic pattern for several times until you start to see them fast and the it move to another pattern.
i've not read it myself but vukovic's the art of attack is the obvious classic. then of course there is the life and games of mikhail tal if you're a tal fan.
Maybe that one its good too:
I dont tknow this book but the author its known to write good books and the rewiew seems good ( and its cheap too!)
Vukovic's Art of Attack
That and Shamkovich's The Modern Chess Sacrifice should give him a full month of work!
