Another book on Tactics

I recently recieved a book from Interlibrary loan called Mastering Tactical Ideas by IM Nickolay Minev. This is a collection of articles from his Inside Chess columns called Tactics, tactics and more tactics. Each article has a tactical theme ie: kamikaze pawns, two horsepower mates, lineal mates, Quiet moves before tactical combinations. The chapter gives 6-7 annotated games that are examples of that theme. This is somewhat in the spirit of Chernev most Instructives games.

I have partially built a collection is chessgames.com of these games.
