If you had to choose one chess luxury item to take to a desert island, how about this - an exquisite selection of 400 chess problems? Each author has carefully selected 100 original positions, divided by difficulty and theme into four sections of 25 each. The focus is on entertainment, instruction and inspiration. The solutions show what lessons can be learned and explain why plausible but incorrect solutions fail.

  • Wesley So presents 100 problems from his own recent games, many of them from elite tournaments. They range from easily overlooked but straightforward ideas to moves with great depth.
  • Michael Adams offers positions from his chess files that have inspired him over the years and includes a section of “warm-up exercises”.
  • John Nunn challenges you to find beautiful tactical twists in current games and studies, as well as in some of his career highlights.
  • Graham Burgess has combed through his work over the years for hidden, unpublished gems and includes thematic sections on opening tactics and defensive ideas.

This book was written by an all-star team of authors. Wesley So is the reigning Fischer Random World Champion, 2017 and 2020 USA Champion, and the winner of the 2016 Grand Chess Tour. Michael Adams has been the best British player for a quarter of a century and was a finalist in the 2004 FIDE World Championship. John Nunn is a three-time winner of both the World Problem Solving Championship and the British Chess Federation Book of the Year award. Graham Burgess is the editorial director of Gambit and the author of 30 books.
