Excellent Teaching App

Concise and easy to understand. Two minor quibbles: 1) Object of game is to checkmate opponent (not to capture a king). A king can never be captured because the game ends before the potential capture can be executed. 2) No algebraic notation example is given for en passant capture. For example if black moves d5, a white pawn on e5 captures the d5 pawn with d4 (a capture without an x in the notation). As a volunteer public school chess coach I am a stalwart fan of tChess Pro, a companion app by the same author, and I use it regularly.

Fantastic and quick read!

This taught me more in an hour or two than I had ever previously known about chess, including various one-off rules. Very enjoyable and nice interactivity built into this ebook. I'm impressed!

Simple presentation, abundant information

I learned basic moves I didn't know had names - now I'll be able to recognize situations and be more successful at chess.
