Secrets of the Russian Chess Masters Volume II
Compiled by Benjamin Lau
--*--

Lev Alburt and Larry Parr's classic book. The title of the book is actually rather misleading, really. It's basically a chess puzzle book. It won't improve your strategic skills a lot, but it makes you really sharp. Chessgames.com is missing a few of the games from the book.
