It walks you through what the pieces do, terms for basic tactics, and then wraps up with a couple example games. The first example game is one player dominating another, which allows for a show of how ;lay strategy and tactics excel over just being smart and understanding how the pieces work. And the second game is a little bit closer, giving a much better idea of how a game between two people familiar with chess but not As an introduction to chess, as the title advertises, this is a good book.
And the second game chesss a little bit closer, giving a much better idea of how a game between two people familiar with chess but not necessarily students of the game can go. The second example game is kind of nice in that it’s a good refresher if you’ve been away from the game for awhile and are more of a casual player, which suits roebrtie well just getting back into it now.

Covers the rules, but I picked it up for a beginning look at tactics and strategy. Also includes two nicely annotated sample games.
Oct 15, Christy rated it it was amazing. If you read and absorb everything in this thin little robretie, you will beat almost everybody you come across.
There are two other Robertie books that are also very good for beginners: Oct 04, Amar Pai rated it it was bkll Shelves: Needs to be an ebook with move by move diagrams.
I find algebraic notation hard to follow, and it’s not convenient to play it out move by move on a real chessboard.
