Author hits it out of the ballpark with this one! Very nice colored pages with illustrations, but not just photos, very clear diagrams and information about the rules of the game. It goes into some hints about strategy which I was pleasantly surprised as well. Great for kids just starting out, this book does not leave my sons side, even when he is playing me, he is going back the book to read when it is my turn. This is by far the number one chess book for kids!

I am an adult who recently learned how to play by purchasing "No Stress Chess" game (which I give the absolutely highest rating possible)and played with my son and I wanted to progress with some strategy, though I play computer chess regularly. I haven''t finished the book completely, but I''m working on it. I give this book the best rating possible because it covers everything a beginner needs and has examples. At the same time it is not a book to read and put away, but makes you want to study over time.

I bought a number of chess books. This book is by far the easiest to follow and stick with. Art work and graphics very clear, understandable and helpful. Perfect for all ages. I bought a number of these as gifts for my friends and family.

This is a great book! I ordered two, one for myself and one for our grandchildren. The 6-year-old was telling me about learning to play chess at school I asked her to teach me so we can play together. She was doing a good of telling me about it but there was so much to remember I decided I needed a book. Other reviews about this particular book convinced me it was the one to order....and they were right on the money....you couldn''t ask for a better tool for learning chess.

Simplicity by the Great
Reviewed in the United States on August 28, 2019
Great intro material and some more - by the great Kasparov. Loved by the 5 (now 6) year old and the older adults in the house alike. Keeps it simple, accessible, clear while including good basics of strategy. Great purchase.

Bought for grandchildren, it is a very well written book by some who knows what he is writing about. It covers all there is to know about chess at a basic and intermediate level from piece names, moves, to positioning and on to specific techniques, moves and games played. Just right for someone beginning chess or wanting to learn more advanced skills. Very quickly, I learned something which helped to explain a fundamental chess concept to my granddaughter; “checkmate” originated in Arabic phrase and simply means “The King is Dead”. As one would expect, it is crammed full of chessboard, explaining this move or that, even a test of notation understanding, i.e. follow the notation and, at the end, if it has been followed correctly, the board should look like the illustration. Recommended.
