Reviews of Charles Hertan's Forcing Chess Moves:
"I love this book"
Elisabeth Vicary, US Chess Federation
"Hertan encourages us to think with 'computer eyes', by first examining all the forcing moves (checks, captures, threats), no matter how daft they seem. Why? Not because forcing moves are always the best, but when they do work, they tend to work better and quicker than non-forcing options."
Danny King, The Guardian (UK)
"An intensive training course for advanced players to improve their tactical vision and calculation (..) You will increase your tactical striking powers a lot."
Erik Rausch, Rochade Europa (Germany)
"Hertan develops the reader's skills methodically, thus enabling each tactical lesson to be learned and absorbed properly."
Marsh Towers Chess Reviews
"Entertaining and instructive (..) you simply cannot stop looking."
Erik Bouwmans, Schaaknieuws (Holland)
"Hertan's book may help to open the reader's eyes (..) The standard practice of studying tactical motifs can blind us to other possibilities."
"Thrilling, instructive and witty. Right on target."
Cor Jansen, Provinciaalse Zeeuwse Courant (Holland)
"Complete and entertaining."
Francesco Benetti, Torre & Cavallo (Italy)
"A super book."
Carl Portman, FOCUS Magazine
"Develops creative, little explored ideas about how to improve your tactical vision (..) with outstanding positions from master practice."
Mark Weeks, About.com
"A book that can improve your tactical skills in no time!’
Elburg Chess Reviews
