Softback, 136 pages. Healy's style is quirky and interesting but if you give him a few pages you'll be hooked. He isn't a top player and the analysis isn't exactly in depth, but Coffee House is nevertheless a good read (and one that can be enjoyed without board).Healy is a master of blending anecdote with analysis. Further, the chess positions, of the kind you'd typically see in the park or in a blitz game online, are usually entertaining attacks or surprising tactics, perfect for enjoying when you just have a little bit of time to read. You'll see Healy "acting in restraint of trade" with a combination to avoid a queen exchange and continue the attack, or with "a pint in the hand and a pig on the seventh."Coffee House Chess Tactics isn't the kind of chess book you buy to study carefully, but it is the kind you buy to enjoy. Highly recommended!
