Product description

Review

"A perfect introduction to tactics for the beginner and developing student" - IM John Watson, The Week in Chess

"Among several good guides to tactical play, my favourite is grandmaster Murray Chandler's How to Beat Your Dad at Chess" - Leonard Barden, London Evening Standard

"Fun to read for players of any age or any strength" - GM Lubosh Kavalek, Washington Post

"50 mating motifs, all beautifully explained and illustrated. This book is not just for beginners, but also for players who wish to refresh existing knowledge" - Lukas Wedrychowski, DailyChessTV

About the Author

Grandmaster Murray Chandler finished second in the World Cadet Championship in 1976, ahead of Garry Kasparov, whom he defeated in their individual game. He remains to this day one of the few players in the world with a 100% score against Kasparov. He was a key member of the England team that won the silver medals in Chess Olympiads three times during the 1980s, and went on to captain the team in 1994. He is proprietor and Editor-in-Chief of the British Chess Magazine and the author of several successful chess books.
