Kindle Review  Dec 1, 2008
This book works out well on the Kindle. A Kindle page shows one puzzle, and the next Kindle page shows the solution. It does not show six puzzles on one page and six solutions on one page like the paper edition. The diagrams are clear and easy to read at the default font size. I am very pleased with the Kindle edition of this book.
I also like the randomness of the puzzle types and difficulty levels. This makes you analyze a real chess position and not just look for the combination you "know" is there. I am 1510 USCF and am happy with the difficulty of the material - so far nothing too easy or so complicated that I can't understand the answer.
Why aren't those 600 positions available as PGN file?  Nov 12, 2008
Excellent book, deserves 5 stars at least. But why not to make these positions available in electronic format (PGN,EPD,ChessBase, whatever)? Would make training so much easier. For sure the author has run it through computer analysis so the file should exist anyway...
practical chess exercises  Sep 13, 2008
this is a great chess book for the kindle. love how the exercises seem random and there are no clues like a real game. and the solutions are revealed by turning the page. simple but clever. highly recommend. but skip the front matter. you can hyperlink to thesymbol keys from each exercise.
Best Chess exercise book availalbe!  Sep 12, 2008
The 600 exercises in Ray Cheng's "Practical Chess" let you approach learning much as you would a real game -- exercises are displayed on one page, and possible solutions are revealed on the next page.There are all kinds of problems, tactical and positional, and they're not labeled so it's more fun and more challenging than most chess book exercises. The Kindle version is awesome. A great find.
Great Exercises, Lacking Theory  Sep 12, 2008
This is my first foray into the chess book market, so to be fair, I have to stipulate at the start that I don't have anything with which to compare this book. Nonetheless, what I find lacking about this book is any explanation into the theory of good chess play. What are objectives in 'start-game', 'middle-game', and 'end-game' sequences? What are the foundations to a great game? What makes a good player? How does one learn to look at the board? These are questions that are completely ignored by this book. Rather, it has a very brief introduction, and jumps directly into exercises. No theory is provided. No base with which to start.

I felt that the author makes certain assumptions about my chess knowledge. Here, I may be showing my ignorance in not knowing, but I don't know the names of many strategies, and even found it difficult to understand the grid movements on the board.

I like the exercises, and feel I have much to gain from this book. But first I want to read a book that outlines common strategies (such as, control the middle of the board, and why), goals, motives during the game, and maybe gives me some coaching on how to deal with the one's own psyche during the game (i.e. how to react if I miscalculate or lose an important piece during play). I don't know if such a book exists, but I have to keep looking

I want to come back to this book when I want to practice thinking about specific chess positions. At the moment, I'm looking for a book that will boost my foundation and give me a better base in the game I love.
