This review is from: 101 Questions on How to Play Chess (Dover Chess) (Paperback)
The usual definition of a classic is something that endures the test of time. By this criteria the game of chess, which originated in India nearly 1,500 years ago, with its millions of devoted players certainly qualifies. But, it is posessed of an intimidating learning curve that can throw off the potential newcomer. Fred Wilson's 101 Questions on How to Play Chess is an ideal primer. This thin volume capably explains the fundamentals and breaks down the walls of complexity-even suggesting titles for the reader reader who wishes to learn more and, more importantly, rates them by experience level. I would reccomend it highly.
