Overview

Think of this book as your second chess book, a broad introduction to chess strategy. Each piece is introduced with its basic strategy, placing rooks on open files, not fixing pawns of the color of your bishop. But there is so much more. Basic development, pawn strategies, and castling. There’s an introduction to chess openings and endgames, and even a range of middlegame themes and mating patterns.

Unlike many other inexpensive chess e-books, these 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.

Jon Edwards won the 10th United States Correspondence Championship in 1997 and the 8th North American Invitational Correspondence Chess Championship in 1999.
