Go figure! I too found a copy on Internet Archive (I know you might not approve) and noodled around using the same tools on whether it would be do-able and worth it. I got well over a hundred pages into it by a very laborious process, but that did not bring over any of the vital illustrations with it. Also, the formatting of the book(sort of half-page double-column text) was the devil to work with and basically doubled the pagination. So, with my limited skills, perhaps do-able. But your follow-up post confirms to me this Sysiphean labor is best put aside.

Suetin (1980) Typische Fehler -- saved the bare PGN to Google Drive and the link is in the attachment.

I've read over the whole book in my poor German, and translated about 20 percent of it in translate.google.com. I haven't seen anything looking like what I want so I am giving up on this one and switching to one of the other suggested books shortly.

Thanks for that! Had the devil of a time getting my copy of Malwarebytes to exclude what it thought was a threat from Quality? You probably know this but FWIW, there are at least 3 copies of Typische Fehler, Pub. Sportverlag up for sale on Ebay, cheap too. But you have to poke around to find them. One is up on Amazon also.

[EDIT: Don't I wish this title was in ebook format. Then it might be possible to convert to PDF and translate to preferred language.]

I don't think so. Web bibliographies are incomplete, but I didn't see anything by that title in google books; annoyingly Typische Fehler also is missing there.
https://www.google.com/search?q=inauthor:%22Suetin%22

There might be some overlap with the 2010 compilation Soviet Chess Strategy.

Wow! Tantalizing table of contents. Any chance it is available in English? Whether OOP or not.

categorizing hard to see manoeuvres

Muchas gracias! "Just what I was looking for" (a Karpov quote). Too many books to keep track of... There used to be a claim that more books had been published on chess than on all other games combined. Things are better Wink now.

Not a puzzle book and not really what you're looking for I suppose, but there's also Invisible Moves by Afek & Neiman, which makes an attempt at categorizing hard to see manoeuvres, analyzes why they're hard to see and gives instructive games.
I think I first heard about Invisible Moves on this forum, so you probably already know it.

Perhaps Nunn's "Solving in Style" might be worth a peek at? It is still in print:

In a way, you could do this on SCID or somesuch database by searching for similar positions, perhaps? Of course, the search term has to be programmed searchable in the first place. But if you could cull out a list of similar positions you might then be able to assemble a relevant database and turn that into a e-book teaching tool.(nothing to it, right? Wink ) I would buy that faster than a backwords-moving bishop! "5,334 Positions You Don't Ever Seem to Solve", by AOC.

Solving a bunch of puzzles where the key is a backwards diagonal move would in theory make us much less likely to miss such resources in our games

Come to think of it, so would studying a bunch of bishop endgames. At some point the opponent will advance a passed pawn and then our bishop better be ready to move backwards diagonally.

Lateral attacks can be easily overlooked, well-known fact of chess training.

I see similar facts mentioned here and there. What I am looking for is a resource that gathers them in one place. There is so much written on chess, maybe someone has done this work. I'm open to other languages. I wouldn't be surprised if there is something like this in Russian.

Ultimately what I wish for would be a diagnostic puzzle book with each puzzle tagged with a bunch of themes. After solving all the puzzles you look up the themes for the ones you missed and if you missed a particular theme more than others then you could get another puzzle book focusing just on that theme. There are plenty of puzzle books organized by theme, but not with themes like "backwards diagonal move", "lateral attack", etc. As a substitute I am using mate-in-two puzzles because the key moves are generally not game-like, so I get lots of examples of counter-intuitive moves, and also lots of examples where I missed them, or at least took a long time to find them.

The Seven Deadly Chess Sins

They can't be all that deadly because I commit each of those sins every game, yet sometimes I still manage to draw or even win.Smiley

Seriously though, thanks, will try to look at Rowson.

Sounds like Oscar Wilde (?) quote on marriage:
    He thinks she won't change, but she does.
    She thinks he will change, but he doesn't.


Lateral attacks can be easily overlooked, well-known fact of chess training.

There's also a book called: The Seven Deadly Chess Sins by Jonathan Rowson, here's a bit of the blurb:
In this thought-provoking and entertaining book, Jonathan Rowson investigates, in his inimitable style, the main reasons why chess-players sometimes go horribly astray, focusing on the underlying psychological pitfalls:
* Thinking (unnecessary or erroneous)
* Blinking (missing opportunities; lack of resolution)
* Wanting (too much concern with the result of the game)
* Materialism (lack of attention to non-material factors)
* Egoism (insufficient awareness of the opponent and his ideas)
* Perfectionism (running short of time; trying too hard)
* Looseness (“losing the plot”; drifting; poor concentration)

My point was that human character can change, but generally it does not. Nor is it trainable into something more successful most of the time. Monkeys can learn, but the leopard still manages to eat. But, fair enough; I see your point that my analogy was faulty.
