Customer Reviews

Review of the chess eBook

This was a fantastic introduction to the world of chess. I have been playing recreationally for over 20 years and this book was the first time I actually learned to understand the algebraic notation because of the great demonstrative and illustrative examples provided.

I would like to add on what another reviewer stated in that it would be great to add an opening game strategy lesson and allow users to perform the steps themselves.

Overall this was a fantastic cover of chess which could be read in 30minutes.


I don't play because I have found the teaching tutorials and texts too detailed. This app is the exception. I can review it quickly to remind myself of the lessons which I found to be in the perfect bite sized digestible sizes to begin with. Its lessons may provide just the "training wheels" I need to begin to make sense of the game

Great app

I've played chess for fun over the past 10 years, but I learned many rules I have never known about. This app is great for any player that's new to the game. Only takes about 30-40 minutes to go through but it was well worth it!
