Alternative Views:


This book is the ideal choice for everyone interested in the game of chess. Starting from the basic moves of the pieces, the author covers all aspects of chess, combining essential instruction with his fascination and enjoyment for a game which he has taught over five decades. The unique teaching methods in this book were developed during the author's long career as chief national coach, which coincided with the emergence of England as a major chess power. Indeed, he has worked extensively with many of England's top Grandmasters.

Chess enthusiasts will find Bob Wade's insight into methods of calculating variations and the psychological factors of competitive play particularly useful. There is also a section on the great chess players, from Philidor to Kasparov, which includes a discussion of the impact of chess computers on the game.

Bob Wade is an International Master and was twice British Champion, representing both England and New Zealand in Chess Olympiads. He is the author of numerous chess books, including The Games of Robert J. Fischer and, with Gary Kasparov, Fighting Chess.
