The most important training methods are covered along with lots of material for the player just beyond a novice or up to an average level tournament player. A unique insight is provided to the reader based the methods used to train 36 national scholastic chess champions. Most of these ideas are found nowhere else in chess literature! The most important rules are clearly covered with some of their weaknesses (something the OFFICIAL RULES OF CHESS dare not point out!). The chapter on Psychology is especially useful. It goes into setting goals, self confidence, dos and don'ts during play, and the important false images that interfear with a player's ability to analyse correctly (i.e. Retained image, Intert image & Forward image - do you know them? You better!). This book is a must read for anyone who plans to play or plays in tournaments. Even if you don't plan to play in tournaments the instructional material takes openings, endgames and tactics a step beyond the basic book in the series, CHESS FOR EVERYONE. The section on selected scholastic champions (profiles and games) is perhaps not as instructive as the rest of the book, but is very interesting and enjoyable to read. This is one of my favorite chess books.

A very different type of chess book. You will learn how to improve your game, some unique things in the rules, chess psychology, materials to train with such as the most important tactical patterns to know, important basic endgames, very nice opening charts and some interesting information on how top young chess champions became champions. Interesting, informative and lots of material.

This series 'Chess for Everyone' is perfect for anyone who is looking to improve his/her chess game. The books are very easy to understand and drastically improve your game. The layout is very easy to follow and is presented in a logical, progressing order. Also very interesting! Great for chess instructors as well!

This is a very good book, especialy for the scholastic player. However the chess diagrams in the nook version are too small and can not be understood. Please B&N edit the ebooks move carefully!
