Romain Edouard – Chess Calculation Training, Vol. 3: Legends
I have always found that existing puzzle books, however good they are, only provide a rather mechanical form of mental training. In this new collection, you will find exercises to help you improve in specific areas of thinking, such as you may encounter in your own games. To help this, all the problems are taken from real games, with most of them having taken place in the last year. The book begins with a warm-up. After that, you will find several types of exercises.
Some of these fall into the same categories as those in my previous book, as they were readers’ favourites. Other categories are completely new, for instance: “Find the killer positional move!” or “Find the stunning winning move!”. The problems in the book are accessible to players with a level from modest to confident. The most difficult ones are marked with an asterisk, while the most challenging chapter comes with a help page, that you may check when necessary.

Great book with many examples from legendary games! 480 puzzles to solve is the number that you can solve for a few months, not rushing, but slowly digesting all the interesting positions and the relationship between the elements.
The only drawback of this great book is the diagrams quality. They are too small (should be be 30% bigger) and the figurines (the pieces and pawns) are not too nice (there are at least 3-4 other types of figures a way nicer and easier to recognize).
