... Winning Chess Tactics by Yasser Seirawan and Jeremy Silman? I'm interested in it, but it's out of print and I can't really find it anywhere for anything less than $30 or $35, and that's used!

Yasser did 6 books for Micrsoft Press. All of them were good, but not great. 'Tactics' covers double attacks, skewers, pins, uncovered checks, etc. Examples are given in the form of annotated portions of games.

Yasser is easy to read and learn from - but the book is aimed towards newer players. Depending on how far along you are, you may not pick much up from the book.

I'm sure you can find it on eBay cheap.
