Every chess player loves to attack the enemy King. Your goal is clear, your thinking is concrete, your creativity is in gear and direct victory is just around the corner. Few things in life are better than a conducting a blistering King s attack! But how good are you actually at attacking? Have you ever analysed your efforts? Looked at calculation errors, missed chances and derailed efforts? Highly experienced chess trainer Herman Grooten finds that many of his pupils overestimate their attacking skills. Their fond memories of successful assaults often obscure the fact that there was a lot of room for improvement in their play. After the immense success of his award-winning classic Chess Strategy for Club Players Herman Grooten has now written an equally accessible primer on attacking chess. He teaches you how to spot opportunities, exploit weaknesses, bring your forces to the frontline and strike at the right moment. Grooten concentrates on training the most valuable skills: visualizing, structuring, anticipating, calculating, memorizing and other mental aspects. This is not just another collection of useful thematic moves but a complete and highly structured course of attacking techniques. With great and fresh examples, clear explanations and many instructive exercises.

Review:
"Judging from the title, it shouldn't really be for me, but I've enjoyed it enormously (...) This book presents the material in a relaxed, easy to read way with surprising examples and little stories that keep you awake and interested throughout."--Matthew Sadler, Grandmaster, former British Champion

"Providing thought-provoking examples (..) There is quite a lot of analysis to allow the keen player to see all the nuances of a particular theme and once you think you have mastered it there are a few more to reinforce the idea (..) A highly readable account of a bamboozling art, but vital if you want to raise your rating."--Gary Lane, International Master "English Chess Federation Newletter "

"I like the structure of the book a lot (..) After simple examples things are getting more difficult step by step (..) Players of any level will be interested in the fundamentals and players of up to 2100 ELO will be thrilled by the more demanding game fragments. The material is often not well-known and Grooten writes very entertainingly, so reading the book is a real joy."--Dirk Schuh, International Master "Rochade Europa Magazine "

"Includes many examples which I feel reasonably sure have not been published before (..) At the end of a chapter the reader is first given a list of bullet pointed conclusions that can be drawn, along with a set of exercises to drive the material home."--Chris Wainscott "ChessIQ "

"Well-chosen examples and clear explanations are present throughout the book (..) Grooten sprinkles anecdotes about the featured examples (..) The most important thing Grooten has going for him as an author is: knowing who he is writing for. Many stronger players have authored books aimed at the club player, but usually they do not understand the capabilities of their audiences."--John Donaldson, International master, International Master

"How do you recognize attacking motifs? How do you optimize the cooperation of your pieces? How do you put open lines to use? How do you exploit weaknesses in your opponent's position? Those kind of matters (..) An excellent book for ambitious club players!"--Richard Vedder, Fide Master "Schakers.info "
