Decoy" has 177 tasks dealing with the deflection motif. You can deflect a piece that is defending the king or you may deflect a piece to win material. The piece being deflected will become overloaded, with too many tasks to deal with. Other topics of the workbook are devoted to leading the opponent’s king or his important piece to a position they would prefer to avoid, and where they become vulnerable to another tactical blow.

Lots of nice exercises with useful patterns to learn, but they are generally not that easy.

"Chess is 90 percent tactics", as one grandmaster said. In chess, the calculation of forcing variations is known as tactics. It is important to have good strategic understanding and positional intuition, but you need to be able to spot and calculate concrete opportunities when they arise on the board.

The workbooks are arranged into chapters presenting tactical tricks in a clear way and provide plenty of instructive exercises for training.
