På engelsk, 128 sider, udgivet 2019
Bogen er udgivet i en robust hardback udgave.

Alle voksne skakspillere ved at skakspillet først begynder at blive sjovt når vi lærer at undgå at falde i modstanderens billige taktiske trick. Plus lærer at udsætte modstanderen for samme taktiske motiver:-)
Det handler denne bog om.

Gør derfor alle skakspillende børn en tjeneste ved at genkende mønstre for taktik.  Nu får du oven i købet hjælp af en erfaren stormester, der arbejder professionelt med skak.

Dette er - som titlen antyder - en samling af hundredvis af øvelser. Som børn og unge elsker at løse.

Men meget mere end det. Du får i bogen 12 af de mest typiske temaer gennemgået, plus et afsluttende afsnit med test øvelser. 
Der vil indikere hvad du skal arbejde videre med.

Min eneste anke omkring bogen er egentligt det læsevenlige. Teksten står meget tæt - Nunn har jo meget på hjerte - og brug af grafiske virkemidler kunne have højnet læsevenligheden. F.eks. en markeret ramme omkring teksten til hvert diagram. Men alt i alt en rigtig god lærebog om et vigtigt emne.

Min vurdering af målgruppen:

Udviklet til børn. Men ikke helt begyndere. Jeg vil nok mene at børn skal have spillet regelmæssigt i et års tid (med forældre, bedsteforældre, skoleskak eller andet) for at få glæde af bogen.

Bogen er tillige et must for klubspilleren i niveauet 1300-1800, der gerne vil blive bedre i kombinationsspillet.

Anmeldelser:

“If you have recently acquired an unexpected role in home schooling and want to expand the curriculum, I can endorse Chess Tactics Workbook for Kids by John Nunn, part of a series of excellent instructional manuals with a lot of puzzles.” – GM Michael Adams, The Daily Telegraph

“John Nunn’s Chess Tactics Workbook for Kids has a PDF of 18 of its problems at the Gambit website. Test yourself on those first 18 fork problems and see how you do. Note that the earlier fork problems are easier than the later ones. For example, the first nine problems have one-move long solutions. If you are challenged by problem 18, which has a two-move-long solution, be aware that numbers 19 to 48 mostly have two-move and three-move-long solutions. I like Nunn’s book, but I am mystified by the ‘for kids’ part of its title. It seems appropriate for all readers” – Alexey Roottexaschess.org

“Nunn uses his unique skill set as a player, author and chess composer to explain the fundamentals of tactics. The author covers one theme per chapter, and provides the reader with clear solutions and explanations to summarize the material. A remarkable primer on chess tactics that can be used for players individually or with the assistance of parents” – Miguel Ararat, Florida Chess

“It was clear when working through the easier set of exercises that the author had thought carefully about their sequence since the reader should (we did for sure!) notice the level of difficulty increasing slowly but surely. In summary, we recommend this book to any junior or adult who wishes to improve their tactical vision and results” – John Upham, British Chess News

“A new series of course books to help young students… highly recommended, and not only for kids!” – John Elburgchessbooks.nl

“John Nunn is one of the most trusted authors in chess and Chess Tactics Workbook for Kids continues his practice of producing well organized and clearly written instructional works” – IM John Donaldson

“Finally a real treat from that magic and brilliant pen that answers to the name of John Nunn. The great Mikhail Tal argued that when he needed to start again, to consider chess from another point of view, more creative, more original, more innovative, the best way was to do so was like children, to start from basic tactical problems viewed as if for the first time. And this is the principle from which the appreciated English GM starts: (re) look at everything from a new perspective. In short, a text that has everything it takes to quickly become a new classic” – Soloscacchi

“A very interesting puzzle book, presented in an attractive hardcover edition with illustrations. The exercises arranged by theme and also in various forms (“Tougher Positions” and “Does the Tactic Work?”) are a welcome change, forcing the solver to think creatively – of great importance during a game” – IM Herman GrootenSchaaksite.nl
