Invisible Chess Moves

Um I am following latest events in midnight nowadays. I was watching live commentary of singufiled cup 2019. Both Anand  and Magnus missed retreating moves. How is it possible?

I meant they are top players in the world but still why it's hard for them to find a backward piece move?

Yes from the very beginning we learnt to move pieces forward but is there is no solution of this issue about finding backward moves in tactical or strategical positions?

Any book which covers puzzles or strategies based on backward moves?

Well there are many reasons: time control, lack of concentration, misevaluation 

Invisible Chess Move is a book

But in the broadcast they had almost an hr for moves . Even yesterday vishy missed Qf1 in depth and magnus missed Na4 against Shak.

I wouldn't say they missed it but they probably saw it and thought a better option was better. I'm not really sure. How obvious are the moves?
