Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent book This is an excellent book for anyone who does not know chess but wants to get a good foundation of basics plus some more advanced ideas and principles. The book follows a logical progression of knowledge from learning the rules, moves and piece values to openings, tactics, strategies with exercises and examples. The chess historian Ed Winter (see his on-line chessnotes), recommends this book as a good one and he is a tough critic, so this is high praise.
