    Book Description

    More chess coaches in America recommend this book for their students than any other book.

    Written by one of the World's Strongest Grandmasters who was top contender for the World Chess Championship, "Chess the Easy Way" takes the player from the beginning moves of chess, rapidly advancing to the Expert Level.

    Long out of print, there have been more requests for this book than ALL OTHER CHESS BOOKS COMBINED.

    Be prepared for a quick ride to the top. Some say that a better title for this book would have been "Chess the Hard Way", because Fine quickly takes the reader from the beginning level to advanced levels of play.

    Reuben Fine (1914-1993) was a top contender for the World Chess Championship. He tied for first in the Strongest Chess Tournament ever played, a tournament that was supposed to decide who would play a match for the World Chess Championship. The War intervened, so Fine never got to play a match for the World Championship and he wrote this book instead.
