    Product Code: B0013GB


    Steve Giddins is an author acclaimed for his ability to write in down-to-earth style on fundamental chess topics. In this book he answers the questions that really matter to chess-players. His topics include many basic ideas, including some that have rarely been addressed so directly in chess literature, and thus are often misunderstood by club players.

    Subjects covered in this book include: Playing Chess in General, The Opening, Tactics and Combinations, Planning and Strategy, Positional Play, The Endgame, Competitive Play and Training and Computers. Throughout this book, the ideas are backed up with examples from practical play and thought-provoking quotes from great chess players, thinkers and writers.
