This is clearly a step up for those of us who are doing pattern recognition and fits the niche perfectly between the "mate in 2" books and the strategic books due to the positional equity that appears in the real games. The author has done a great deal of research in choosing professional games of late and finding the exciting game-changing positions. This gives the book a certain feel of tension and excitement, bringing the reader 'into' the battle.
My intention is to work through the book several times, as I hope that some pattern recognition (remove the defender, for example) will become instinctive. The author's sober comments and advice is encouraging and helpful.
