    Chess & Checkers - The Way to Mastership
    Catalog Code: B0348IS

    Edward Lasker was an expert and authority on many games, not only chess and checkers but also go, the Oriental game he introduced to the United States. General strategic principles rather than analyses requiring memorizing are stressed throughout the book, so that even a beginner or a player of moderate experience can understand the discussion. This method of teaching is unquestionably the most interesting and effective, because it makes the student think for himself.
