And the author does not leave the aspiring player stranded at that point. He has four other volumes in the "Chess for Everyone" series. In "Unbeatable Chess Lessons" he gives 24 games with explanation for every move to help you gain complete understanding of the ideas. This approach is continued in "More Unbeatable Chess Lessons" containing another 24 games. You can gain greater understanding of opening principles with "Winning Chess Traps". It shows you how to take advantage of situations where a player violates opening principles. And, to round out your chess education he wrote "Winning Chess Tournaments" to help you understand how to compete in chess tournaments. It also contains chapters on tactics and endgames that give you important basic patterns to increase your knowledge of the game.
The aim of the series is to take the player from beginner to the point of being a very strong player.
With this series you definitely get value for you money!
Added to his list of shady activities is the fact that he and his compadres in the chess community have manipulated the reviews of his books here on Amazon for years. Dont believe me? Just check out how many of his reviews are written by people in Colorado, his home state. Also, check out how many helpful votes some of these fake 5 star reviews are getting. One of these reviews has recieved OVER 900 helpful votes!! Are you kidding? For a chess book?!?!?! That is a fraud. These streams of 5 star reviews are nothing more than advertisements. They are NOT, by and large, reviews from unbiased readers. I cannot believe Amazon has not caught up to this scam.
I know the reviews should be based only on the material in the book, but I believe the public needs to be aware of what is going on before deciding to purchase an item written by this individual. If you want to read quality chess books by someone who has an ounce of respect for children, I would highly recommend the series by Seirawan or any of the books by Silman. You cant go wrong with Pandolfini either.
