Great book for a beginner, and also learn some chess history,
By A Customer
This review is from: Play Winning Chess: Introduction to the Moves, Strategies and Philosophy of Chess (Paperback)
I learnt a lot about the basics of chess with this book. Seirawan has such a great feel on how to teach the beginner. I would recommend this book to everyone who is interested in learning chess in an easy maner. Another thing a liked was the fact that Seirawan tells you just enough history about chess to make in interesting, but not overwhelming so that it will bore you if you don't really care about the history of chess.
