Looking for Trouble Recognizing and Meeting Threats in Chess - Dan Heisman

Thanks to sas and to PaulieD! sunny

Looking for Trouble just got posted on Demonoid. It is a collection of 200+ chess positions that are mostly tactical in nature. What separates this book from other similar works are the extensive and helpful verbal annotations, and the fact that it's not "White to move and win", but instead: "Avoid the threat and find the best move". Working through this book feels more like playing a real game than playing through a normal collection of tactical problems, and is surprisingly fun.
One of the main benefits of this book is that it helps you to establish a better thinking process. After you worked through all the puzzles, your first thought while playing a game will be "What is his threat?", which is exactly how it should be.

The positions themselves are also very instructive: Taken from real games, sorted into openings, middle game and endgame sections and assigned an estimated difficulty.

Stop loosing games because you did not see your opponent's threat, get this book and become stronger!
