Fully revised and updated by chess expert Richard James, a new chapter shows how to encourage and teach children to play the game.

From the Publisher

The standard text for chess players
Chess is the most popular indoor game in the world, and ‘The Right Way to Play Chess' has now served as tutor to generations of readers.

In this tenth revised version, D. B. Pritchard draws new inspiration from the latest developments in the game. Yet, because the basics remain invariable, Pritchard's teaching method retains its unique pre-eminence and authority.

The book is now established as the Standard Work on the subject. It is planned to take the complete beginner to the grade expected of a good club player. The journey is a pleasant one!

Some reviews which hailed earlier editions:

Sunday Times: " . . . remarkable"

The Observer: " . . . easy"

Yorkshire Post: "Chess without tears . . . "
