Summary "Three brilliant books in one volume - an essential guide to to the new chess player!"--Page [4] of cover.
Starting Out in Chess: International Master Byron Jacobs provides a thorough grounding of the game. This is the first book in the Starting Out series and is for newcomers to chess and those looking to improve their game.
Rapid Chess Improvement is the ideal book for serious adult players who want to improve. It describes a study plan which came about thanks to a re-evaluation of standard chess teaching and includes several unique components aimed at improving deficiencies in the play of adult players. This book is the only one of its kind for the simple reason that it has been written by an author who hugely improved his own rating over a 12 month period by following his own advice. He therefore fully understands the challenges faced by enthusiastic players who are relatively new to the game. This is in sharp contrast to most books aimed at this level which are usually written by very strong players who have long forgotten what it feels like to be starting out in the game.
Tips for Young Players: Grandmaster Matthew Sadler answers key questions such as: Which openings should I play ? How do I learn to spot tactics? What do I need to know about the endgame?
Subject Chess -- Study and teaching.
