Catalogue text:

The King in Jeopardy: the Best Techniques for Attack and Defense is the fourth volume in Grandmaster Lev Alburt's Comprehensive Chess Course series. Endorsed by world champion Garry Kasparov as revealing "the once-secret Russian method of chess training," the first two volumes used only materials that worked well in the former Soviet Union. The current volume's predecessor in this series, Chess Tactics for the Tournament Player (Volume III in the series), was acclaimed by legendary former Chess Life Editor Larry Parr as "the best thing ever written for achieving quick improvement in tactical play."
