Through chess the book teaches math, geometry and cleverly keeps the reader hooked by presenting puzzles with gradual increase in difficulty. I love the way the book demonstrates the importance of history to children through explaining famous games played by past chess champions. The authors clearly understand how to build excitement through learning.
Fantastic interactive chess book
This book manages to be informative and fun at the same time. The book is very clear, has tons of content and is very well put together. Highly recommended for anyone looking to learn chess.
Comprehensive yet simple
I love this book, have never really mastered chess but was eager to learn. This book makes that simple and is also enjoyable. Explanations are simple to understand and make sense.
I highly recommend it, although I am a beginner, I suspect because of the detailed nature, it will be suitable for advanced players as well.
