Tactimania is a chess puzzle book with a difference. Grandmaster Glenn Flear makes sure the puzzles are unfamiliar to the reader by selecting them only from games played by himself or his wife Christine. The puzzles start at a moderate level then get steadily more difficult. The reader will be challenged by the puzzles and entertained by the manga-style illustrations that feature throughout.

Glenn Flear is a chess grandmaster, author and coach. Early in his career, Glenn achieved one of the greatest-ever chess surprises when, as a last minute substitute, he won the London 1986 tournament ahead of a host of famous players. Glenn and Christine married during this event!

Editorial Reviews

“I liked the pictures, with their gentle humour sprinkled throughout. Along with the clean presentation of the puzzles, it makes for an attractive book all-round... Initially I didn’t find any (of the puzzles) especially difficult, but they quickly became more challenging, and the trickier ones are marked as such.”GM Luke McShane, New In Chess “The cartoon characters from the cover appeared throughout the book which I - as well as my kids - found appealing. But don’t imagine this isn’t a serious work: the hardest test positions are as tough as any from Neishtadt.”GM Daniel King and Ronan Bennett, while adding Tactimania to The Guardian’s Book of the Year shortlist
