Dear Sir,

For the unknown person your book's title is Attacking Chess, but I think, its name should be Chess with Attacking Move.

Dear Sir,

For the unknown person your book's title is Attacking Chess, but I think, its name should be Chess with Attacking Move.

Further, you could provide demo book bearing good attacking & traping moves with best opening so that illigible person can buy your books to read best move.

But online there is no sample or demo books for practise & learn, so how can customers will attract to you.

Thanking you, with best reagards,

Your welwisher,
Tarun Garg.
