Here's how I play chess: I know how all the pieces move, and I move them accordingly when it's my turn, and I try to take my opponent's pieces. Hardly sophisticated, and in fact I don't enjoy the game for anything other than the opportunity it presents for socialising.

I hoped that this book would teach some basic strategy, but I found that the tactics it recommended each involved so specific an arrangement of pieces, that it simply was not worth memorising them all on the off-chance that they'd come up.

Perhaps a better title would have been: "How to beat your dad at chess (if you've been playing for five years or more)"

Even though I am playing chess for while, never learned chess in a formal way. I felt this is a amazing book. I will recommend to Dads in particular ;-)
