K. Kris Loomis is the author of How to Sneak More Yoga Into Your Life and the Modern Shorts for Busy People series.
If you're a beginner, you should stop reading this review right now and download the book. If you're an intermediate player or above, you still may want to get it to sharpen your eye. It's fun to see how quickly you can spot the capture or mate, and it can't hurt your blitz game.
At $1.99, this is once again a super bargain. Please, authors, keep 'em coming!
I bought this for my kids after looking at the previews of this and the Tactics Time book for mid-level players. I figured if the authors can do 1000 diagrams with explanations of original chess problems (the other book), they have their heart in the right place. Though the authors don't mention it in their description, this book has 300+ problems. The online preview here was good, but it really only sunk in once I opened it on my kindle. The diagrams were crisp and flawlessly formatted to my screen. One diagram, one direction ("white to move") and nothing else on the page - perfect simplicity. Touch the screen, and there is the answer, sometimes with a brief explanation. No spending lots of time going to the back of the book or the end of the chapter as I had to do when growing up, just one simple touch. Then another touch and on to the next position. Great value for $2.
Dad was a strategist and was well aware of the parallels between the game of life and a game of chess:
1. Plan ahead several moves at a time keeping your goal in mind.
2. Be at all times aware of the current position of each piece.
3. Anticipate your opponent's moves.
Dad taught me much about philosophy and mind expanding games. Chess is the one I value above all as it helped me develop vision for the future and how to strategize. I wish I had this book and current technology so I could have spared him the initial tedious hours he spent playing with me at the initial stages. I am having a ball refreshing my memory and I highly recommend this book for its simplicity without sacrificing effectiveness, and the obvious advantage of not having to rely on a partner to practice with.
This book is a steal at this price and the best and most useful present to yourself or a child. It could be marketed as a game for 10 times the price.
