Improve Your Chess in 7 Daysby Gary Lane
In the chess world, there are the few—the dedicated, competitive experts—and the many, the millions of social players who are totally unaware of chess theory. Now there’s a quick and easy way to bridge the gap. In just one week, the unschooled player will gain access to the principles that guide the masters: On the first day, the basic concepts of strategy and tactics are introduced. On the second, the reader learns some of the more popular openings and the ideas behind them. And so on, until, by the seventh day, the rapidly advancing student will be able to pull off sophisticated swindles! Illustrated with sidesplitting cartoons, it’s a quick, entertaining, and extraordinarily direct road to chess mastery.

If you want to be good this is a good place to start. Mr Lane is the chess teacher you never had but always wanted. It is for people who can play a bit amd want to win. Chess carttons and jokes make it easy to read but there are lots of gems there. Strictly for winners.
A lucid explanation about how to be good at chess. Gary Lane allows the casual player to find out a few tricks of the trade. Predict-a-move is a brilliant idea that I have now used several times. It sounds simple but it works. The fun of learning is helped by witty comments and excellent cartoons. I cannot imagine a better book for giving you a solid foundation on which to build your chess career.
