Format: Paperback
Today I received my copy of "Checker Power by Robert W. Pike. I was excited about advancing my knowledge and skills in the game of checkers. I spent the next '10' minutes reading this (book). Each set of pages contain, (on one page), a LARGE checker board which takes up the entire page. The opposite page contained at least 'one' (usually small), paragraph explaining the absolute most basic aspects of checkers. If you have ever played even one game of checkers, you know more than all the knowledge contained in this (book). I say (book) in parenthesis because this should be classified as a PAMPHLET. The entire book contained about 40 or 50 paragraphs..!! Need I continue!. AOL, please do us a favor and remove this "PAMPHLET" so others will not have to pay the postage to get this PAMPHLET and the postage to RETURN this PAMPHLET.! Richard Mathis rdsupply@easilink.com

Very disapointed. I did not lean anything new. I expected some good stratagies for winning the game.I think any thinking person would already know the tips they gave.

This was a very basic explanation of the game of checkers. Not much help in planning strategies to win.

An excellent book for beginners. It stresses the official colors for board & checkers, teaches the correct rules in an interesting way. There have been exceedingly few new books on checkers in the last 40 years or so. I have given away several copies of this book to nieces, nephews, and children of friends.
