Overview

Why do we use chess notation?

You probably don't want to write down your chess moves. It looks boring. It looks like homework. It looks like no fun. But if it's boring and no fun, why do so many chess players do it? There are many reasons. First, we can only play through each other's games if we record them. If you can read chess notation, you can play through all of the moves of any game. You can enjoy the games of great players like Bobby Fischer, Paul Morphy, Garry Kasparov, or even the games played by your friends. And playing through others' games is one of the easiest ways to improve your game. You can see the moves and ideas of the world's great players. You too can use those ideas in your own games!

Unlike many other inexpensive chess e-books, the books in the Chess is Fun series are fully annotated in understandable, simple language. The profuse use of diagrams make these among the first chess books that you can read WITHOUT A BOARD at your side.
