Eric Schiller

This book tells you all about the game of chess from the elementary rules to sophisticated strategies. You’ll learn how to attack and defend, set devious traps, win material, and checkmate the opponent. Schiller shows you how to plan moves in advance, anticipate opponents moves, and get the most out of your pieces. The many ways of beginning each game are discussed at length, and you’ll learn what to do when you have gained the advantage. Then, when its time to finish off the enemy, Schiller discusses the ways to end the game. Toward the end of the book, more advanced techniques are presented that will pave the road to chess mastery. This book is presented with an easy-to-read format, with big print, sidebars, and clear explanations. 313 pages
