Chess is a refreshing pastime for most players, and an all-encompassing obsession for a few. And yet much of chess literature--heavy on notation, low on useful illustrations, frustrating for the beginner--is directed at those already in the know. Knack Chess for Everyone provides an alternative: a clear, understandable, and fun entry into chess that doesn't ignore the complexities and challenges. Photographs of actual game boards, often paired with a diagram, represent the perspective of the player looking at the pieces. The book clearly explains the rules of play and movement of pieces, and then gradually introduces various tactics and strategies.
