Every player enjoys defeating their opponents in double-quick time. In this book, International Grandmaster Neil McDonald presents a varied selection of 'miniature' games (games in which one player or the other wins in under 30 moves) from modern master games. Each game is chosen for its instructive qualities and annotated in detail, and the games are grouped by theme to illustrate how the reader can win more miniatures themselves. * More than fifty miniature games annotated in depth * Games by Kasparov, Kamsky, Shirov and many other leading grandmasters 150 pages.

An Amazon reader says: "This is a really great effort. The format, diagrams, and games are all excellent.
This book could be used just for fun (i.e. playing over the games), or for instruction (i.e. especially in a scholastic setting).
I once attended a lecture given by Grandmaster Ashley on how to teach scholastic players (i.e. what was most important for rapid improvement). He said the focus should be 1) tactics 2 ) endgames and 3) play over minature games.
Playing over minature games can help you (or your students) develop a sort of "feel" for tactics sort of by osmosis.
anyway, give this book a try - you won't be disappointed."
