Winner of the British Chess Federation Book of the Year award in 1995

Gambit Publications are pleased to announce a reissue of this classic book, which has been out of print for several years. It is available in print, Kindle and app formats.

John Nunn has an unparalleled reputation as a chess theoretician and writer of the highest class. In this book he focuses his attention on his own games and annotates 40 complete games and many game fragments.

The book covers the period 1985-1993, when Nunn rose to enter the world top 10, and includes victories over Short, Tal, Korchnoi, Anand, Gelfand, Portisch, Judit Polgar and many other top players. The analysis of these games provides a manual of attacking chess from one of the world’s best tacticians. This book is far more than a collection of superbly analysed games, however, since the author has brought the games to life with anecdotes from the events, and provides many practical tips which will be of benefit to aspiring chess players of all levels of ability.

Dr John Nunn is one of the best-respected figures in world chess. He was among the world’s leading gramdmasters for nearly twenty years, winning four gold medals in chess Olympiads. He is also a much-acclaimed writer, whose works have won ‘Book of the Year’ awards in several countries. In 2004, 2007 and 2010, Nunn was crowned World Chess Solving Champion, ahead of many former champions.
