Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"Players returning to chess after a break (school, job, family, etc.) might find The Rules of Winning Chess a good way to get some guidance and focus as they ease back into the Royal Game (or start removing the "rust"). Beginning club players might find The Rules’ direction (and inspiration) much less intimidating than, say, tackling Dvoretsky's manuals."

- Rick Kennedy, Chessville.com

ChessCafe.com - Steve Goldberg
From its attention-grabbing cover to its typical Everyman typeface clarity, 'The Rules of Winning Chess' is another welcome addition to any chess player's library.
