As a chess player who has not looked at a board since leaving school, forty something years ago, I have found the book invaluable in helping to retrieve my knowledge of openings, positions and end games. I am hopeful that by the time I complete it, my game will have returned to adequate club standard. If I can achieve that, I will have a lot to thank it for.
This book will help even beginners, but the biggest help is going to be for intermediate level players. The author avoids a lot of "technical" sounding analysis and focuses on the basics - again, this is in the initial sections. The latter parts may be more complex, but I am yet to come to those.
The reason for 4 stars is the quality of the paper and binding. It is pretty sad - I can see this book falling apart with even a moderate amount of usage. It would be ideal to get this book in ebook form, especially if there is a way to do the exercises and challenges within the book itself.
