 Post subject: Best book for a beginner?
PostPosted: Sat Dec 06, 2014 10:20 pm 
A good book, if not the best, is 'Guide to Good Chess' by CJS Purdy. It covers all facets of the game and is full of tips for the beginner, based on Purdy's experience teaching newcomers. His written style is very clear (non-Australian readers need to know that 'biff' means 'attack'). In my view he just beats anything by Heisman and Silman. Just the thing for a Christmas present.

By learning the game of chess you are opening up a whole new world of tactics that have been around for centuries. If you are willing to go through an easy course to learn the game, you will have to work through some simple basics. The basics are easy to remember, and in my opinion, are the easiest part of learning the game. Learn the fundamentals. Players wishing to learn chess are also advised to learn and practice as many tactics as time allows.
