Joe Gallagher

128 pages (210 mm by 145 mm). ISBN 1 901983 20 X.

Grandmaster Joe Gallagher serves up a plethora of ideas to help you root out the enemy king whenever you have the chance. He shows how to mate an exposed king, how to and what to sacrifice, and how to spot key weaknesses. Gallagher also reveals when it is wiser to opt for a positional onslaught, with guidance on the queenside minority attack and other less violent attacking methods.

Joe Gallagher is an English grandmaster who has lived in Switzerland for many years. He is a regular member of the Swiss national team. He has established a reputation as a top-class chess writer, in particular for his work on aggressive openings such as the King's Gambit, Sicilian and King's Indian Defence.

"If you want an enjoyable book which will provide one with many new ideas without needing to do too much work then this is the book for you. Gallagher has made good use of the recent high-quality attacking chess at top level with an entire idea devoted to Ivanchuk's genius, whilst great games from Kasparov, Anand and Topalov are there" - Richard Palliser, HULL CHESS CLUB MAGAZINE
