Al forskning viser at skak udvikler børn kreativitet og matematiske regneevner. 

Gør derfor alle skakspillende børn en tjeneste ved at give dem udfordringer. Ved at lære dem at løse opgaver (kaldes "puzzles"), så længe deres hjerner - modsat os gamle - er åben for indlæring. Nu får du oven i købet hjælp af en erfaren spiller og træner, der arbejder professionelt med skak.

Med denne bog er mere end en samling af 264 puzzles. De er nøje udvalgt for at illustrere typiske og tilbagevendende temaer og mønstre. Bogen er opdelt i 100 temaer.

At genkende mønstre er meget vigtig for ens skaklige udvikling, og baggrunden for senere at kunne spille dybe kombinationer (læs: de færreste kan regne dybt uden at kunne regneregler:-)). 

Bogen fremstår meget lære og læsevenligt, i skrift og diagrammer. Alt i alt en rigtig god lærebog om et vigtigt emne.
Til sidst i bogen får du testafsnit.

Min vurdering af målgruppen:

Udviklet til børn og unge. 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 1100-1800, der gerne vil blive bedre til at genkende - og selv udføre - kombinationer!

De mange eksempler gør også bogen velegnet til undervisning.

Anmeldelser:

“Ideal for club/group discussion... enjoyable” – British Chess Magazine

“As instructive as it is enjoyable... the many examples and exercises will sharpen the skills of players of any age” – Grandmaster Michael Adams, DAILY TELEGRAPH

“This is a very good book in my opinion. I’ve solved many puzzles both in books and articles and I must say this one is really great! Not just because it fulfills its aim to encourage kids to learn tactics and improve their vision but also the way it’s presented and built. Rating: 5/5, Highly recommended” – Lukas Wedrychowski, DAILYCHESSTV

“The final chapters are really challenging – something like Mission Impossible – but they are somehow the bridge the reader has to pass over to become ... a brilliant champion” – soloscacchi.altervista.org

“I’m not in the target audience, but for me at least, this seems like a super book. 100 beautiful themes are first presented with some nice examples before the book ends with 60 tasks. This is a step beyond the basics. ... All examples are from games from the past couple of years, which is also a good sign. This is quality.” – GM Simen Agdestein, Verdens Gang

“Chandler guarantees that ‘the cumulative effect of knowing a few hundred such patterns will make you a very dangerous opponent,’ which is something the reader will learn once they begin implementing these themes in their own games. Chess Puzzles for Kids will surely help a student improve their pattern recognition and overall tactical acumen, while also making a nice holiday gift!” – Michael McGuerty, Chesscafe.com

“A nice follow-up from Chandler to his two existing volumes on tactics: How to Beat Your Dad at Chess and Chess Tactics for Kids. Going through these positions will help you to develop a feeling for tactical patterns, and this will help you in the end to become a much better chess player” – John Elburg, chessbooks.nl

“This book is a continuation of Gambit’s best selling series of instructional books aimed at junior players. The previous volumes are Chess for ChildrenHow to Beat Your Dad at Chess and Chess Tactics for Kids, all of which were covered in my first review column, back in 2005. There are lots of books for juniors on the market. So, what does this one bring to the table? The 100 positions are arranged by theme, such as Attack on the Castled King and Back-Rank Combinations. Each numbered lesson is presented on a single page. The clarity of the presentation makes the book very easy to navigate and makes it an excellent volume for chess coaches to use with their students. Despite the title, I think this book has a potentially wider audience than just youngsters... Club players may find some of the positions of use too, as quick warm up exercises just before a game. It’s a very enjoyable book, enhanced by quirky illustrations by Cindy McCluskey (look out for ‘Arabian Mate’ and ‘The Rook Lift’) and bound in a sturdy hardback cover.” – Sean Marsh, marshtowers.blogspot.co.uk

“Grandmaster Murray Chandler writes excellent books for kids who already know how to play. I like his latest work...it expands on his two previous books How to Beat Your Dad at Chess and Chess Tactics for Kids. In all these works Chandler presents the mating and tactical patterns in such a clear and entertaining way that it is a joy to read it. And as I said before, it is not only for kids.” – Grandmaster Lubosh Kavalek, Huffington Post

“Teachers, mums and dads, children who are beginners, and beginners who don’t want to stay beginners, should stop and browse here. Most of the games are recent and at the back, as if you haven’t suffered enough, are thirty test positions... an excellent Christmas present.” – James Pratt, British Chess Magazine
