The title is a little misleading though. This is basically 50 checkmating patterns, 1 per page. I would suggest reading and re-reading this book until those patterns are burned into your memory. You'll be suprised at how often the opportunity to use these checkmate motifs will appear in your games.
easy to follow and soon picked up moves again. My son soon picked up on it and we learnt together but he didn't find it that easy to
follow as there's just so much black and white and small print. SO the DS went away and a chess set beside the book is really needed
to get the best out of each section.
Don't be put off by the title, this excellent book is neither condescending nor patronising.
Worth every penny.
I can recommend this book to any kid / adult starting out in chess ...
