5.0 out of 5 stars Clear, exciting and fun - for all ages 13 April 2000
By A Customer
This book is full of common sense and down to earth explanations of the basic principles of Chess. Within the first few pages the author starts to demystify areas of the game that have always seemed complicated to me. Written in a fun and informal style with lots of examples I was amazed to find myself enjoying and reading it so quickly. I always knew what each piece on the board did but not what I should be aiming for to win, and thought that reading a chess book would be very hard going. Well this book is fun! The author has said that he wanted to write the kind of book that every good Chess player wished they could have read when they began. It covers everything from the general principles of the opening, middlegame and endgame, to discussing attacking, positional and endgame plays. There are also exercises to do which kept me challenged when I was unable to find anyone of my basic level to play with. Having tried Chess when young and then left it for twenty years - now having read this book, I am intrigued by the game and want to learn more! When I watch other people play I can see the principles in action and share the excitement and tension of the game. Anyway I have raved enough! If you have ever thought about learning Chess then buy this book and you will never look back.

5.0 out of 5 stars A favourite 26 Mar 2011
One of my favourite chess books. I've bought loads of chess books that I've waded part way through before losing interest but this is short and sweet with good advice for hobby players of any age

Given as a small prize at school chess club. The new owner found it to be very good. so I am giving it 4 stars this time, and hope to buy more for small prizes as the opportunity arises, and will 'star' according to their feedback.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not THAT young! 30 Nov 2010
I bought this book for my 10 year old son, who knows all the moves in chess, and wants to learn some strategy. This book is not suitable at all. It is very densely written, launches straight into coded moves without any key or explanation (I didn't know Knights were'N' for example!). It would be good for an older teenager or adult, but I think it is poorly named. Never in a million years would my son read this on his own! It was a struggle for us to decipher the first 2 pages together.

1.0 out of 5 stars Received another book! 11 April 2012
By Maria
Verified Purchase
Unfortunately, I received another book not the one I had ordered!
The book received is called "How to win at chess & backgammon" and it says it has an abridged version of the book "Tips for young players".
The book is in quite a good condition although the front cover is damaged.
However, I did not want this book as I ordered "Tips for young players".
I did not want an abridged version and I am noy interested in backgammon.
I am very disappointed.
