Play Winning Chess 3.7 out of 5 based on 0 ratings. 3 reviews.

For a novice chess player, this book is fantastic. A novice is anyone who can play chess but doesn't do it well. It doesn't matter if they've played for 20 minutes or 20 years. I was a novice for a long time and did little more than flail at my opponents. After reading this book, I started defeating players to whom I had always lost. I already have the second book in this series and plan to get them all.

This book moves at too fast a pace for someone is is just starting out. For the player who knows the very basics this book will provide some useful strategies. The real purpose of this book is indeed confusing as the other books in the series seem to have more direction.

It is difficult to tell where this book in the 'Winning Chess' series fits in. For an abslolute beginner or near absolute beginner the primer of the basic rules and strategy part moves along so quickly it is difficult to grasp. Therefore, the logical audience is for a person who already knows alittle about chess but wants to learn some of the more intermediate concepts. It does a good job to this end.
