Russian IM Dvoretsky is considered by many to be the world's best chess trainer of advanced players. This volume is about as 'easy' a text as he has written, as some of his tomes can probably only be profitably used by titled players. But this is not a tactics primer, and you will probably want to master a couple thousand or more basic tactical problems before you tackle this work.
Short of having a first rate coach, a book like this is about the best you can do to improve your tactics, as you are not just solving problems, you are absorbing the wisdom obtained from Dvoretsky's decades of exposure to Russian chess culture.
You are also, of course, getting the benefit of learning from such a gifted and experienced trainer. Topics include choosing candidate moves, using logic vs. So as you can see, there is much to be learned here that you will not get from solving tactical puzzles.
Once you are adept at solving a comprehensive range of basic tactics, you owe it to yourself to tackle this challenging but highly worthwhile work. Even better yet, have your chess coach guide you through it! Good hunting! Dvoretsky provides outstanding coverage of the process of finding, calculating and playing tactics and combinations in positions. In addition to explanations of this difficult process, he provides many exercises and their solutions to train your vision, calculation and play of tactics and combinations.
This is a great book for overall calculation skills such as calculating for a slight advantage, maintaining equality in tough positions, defense, positional sacrifices, etc. The difficulty of the problems varies, and you probably won't get all of them right. The important thing is working out calculation and visualization skills and where we're likely to err is in misevaluating the ends of the forcing variations.
Other times still the best move might not even be a candidate! Most of the study comes from whole games so we know the entire context from beginning to end. In a practical game we aren't always winning so it's good to practice calculation for other situations as well. These are the types of exercises I was looking for. Excellent Thanks!

School of Chess Excellence 1 : Endgame Analysis
I would like to build a complete collection of books from Mark Dvoretsky. Assuming one skips the now defunct Batsford books, the remaining publishers are Edition Olms and Russell Enterprises. Specifically, are the 2 sets of books published by Edition Olms completely separate and unique, or is one a reissue of the other? If so, which one is the latest and greatest? If everything on this list is unique, then it appears that the definitive Dvoretsky collection would consist of 18 books. I can't answer your question, but the answer would be helpful.
