About the Author

Hi,

My name is Cory Klein and I'm a Software Developer with a passion for the game of chess. I started playing Chess when I was very young and I have always been passionate about this beautiful game. At first, it was just a game we played among friends and classmates, but I quickly fell in love with it. I believe the game of Chess awoke in me a passion for logical thinking and puzzle solving that is well aligned with my passion for computers and coding.

Chess is so much more than a game to me. It is and has been an opportunity to get with friends and spend quality time together. Furthermore, it has been a continuous source of entertainment both through playing and research in the form of lectures and videos I watch regularly. Chess has also been a great bonding experience and a way to meet new people with similar interest in the game. In college, I regularly played in a chess club where I made a few friends who I still play against every now and then.

To be completely transparent, I am no chess master nor expert. These titles require levels of intelligence, knowledge, and practice that I have not had the chance to reach. However, I know quite a bit about the game from years of research, lectures, videos and most importantly, playing. I have played and studied the game long enough to teach the basics to any chess beginner. I have successfully taught it to a few friends and relatives, and although I have not made anybody a chess master, I have helped people discover the game and start playing it which I'm very happy about.

Like I said before, I believe chess is an opportunity to bond with people. It is also a very fun and entertaining game, especially if you like logic teasers, puzzles, and problem solving in general. My goal is to make the game accessible and playable to as many people as possible. Chess is kind of a culture that I would love to see grow more and more. As I am sure, there are many people out there curious to learn how to play this wonderful game, and I hope my introductory books can be a starting point.

Thanks for reading and don't wait to make a move!

Cheers,

Cory
