Dr John Nunn is one of the best-respected figures in world chess, having numbered among the world's leading grandmasters for nearly twenty years. He has won four gold medals in chess Olympiads, and has three times been crowned World Chess Solving Champion. Nunn's playing style is notoriously aggressive, with sacrifices, king-hunts and checkmates featuring in many of his finest wins.
"John Nunn, renowned king-hunter, presents 1001 checkmate puzzles.
Players who study this book will learn much about tactical motifs
leading to mate ... a delightful tome for any lover of chess" - Bab

"Recognizing patterns has long been recognized as one of the hallmarks of chess mastery and 1001 Deadly Checkmates offers a series of exercises to train this skill arranged by theme and increasing difficulty. To challenge those of a competitive nature points are awarded for each correct answer with solvers able to track their success." - USA Team Captain John Donaldson
"Thirty minutes spent tackling a number of positions such as those in this book prior to a game really sharpens the mind and brings about a greater awareness of the tactical possibilities that may arise in the course of a game. Even without such a goal, it is a pleasure simply to play through the book and wonder at the beauty and infinite variety of the game of chess." - Alan Sutton, En Passant
