    good for kids

    Bought this for our 7year old nephew who just started chess competitions with school. He said he likes it, is easy to understand and has helped him understand some more strategies to enhance his playing.

    Great chess book to explain concepts with a sound visual-learner emphasis.

    The presentation of the information in this book is among the best. I kept looking for a "good" introductory chess book for my 10 year-old nephew. This is simply the best introductory work if you are a visual learner. I looked briefly at a book with visual or visually in the title, but I felt that the presentation here was particularly suited to both young adults and novices. I would recommend a few other works too, but I would have them start here. Without as good of a presentation, but with information I think all novices should learn, Tips for Young Players gets an honorable mention.

    What a valuable book for seriuos chess beginners

    This is a must have book for serious chess beginners who wish to improve their game by self study.<BR/>After a couple of months playing against some computer chess programs and other people I started to look for chess books that might helped me to improve my game. I would recommend this book to anyone who wants to understand: (a) why would you open your game in a specific way and why would you answer to a specific openingin another way depending on where you want to land your position, (b) how to develop after the openening (this is my major problem/challenge) and what would happen after your selected action, and (c) how to end a game.<BR/>The books graphically stresses what are the results of your actions so you can understand the benefits and consequences of them. <BR/>This is a study book, to which you will be coming over and over for a couple of months while you learn your basics; as I'm a beginner, I still come to it to review positions that I have come in my games.
