Hello and thanks for the assistance. I wanted to wait on replying until I tracked down the book in question. As it turns out I was mistaken, the book is actually "Test Your Chess" by Gerald Abrahams published in 1963. I found and purchased a used copy on eBay. Anyone else own this book? Regards, Mark

Nope. I don't think I ever heard of it until now.

There is a book, '101 Chess Puzzles & How to Solve Them'. You can purchase the book from Amazon.com. It may be the book you're looking for. It's out of print. Used copies are available. The publish date is 1960.

Hi all, I'm looking for a chess puzzle book I bought back in the 70's. It was a paperback puzzle book with (i think) 101 puzzles. Here is the key identifier to the specific book. There was a question with each puzzle. The question for one of the puzzles, and I believe it was the 2nd puzzle, was, "How subtle are you?" Can anyone help me identify this book. Thank-you. Mark
