This is the book most recommended by chess coaches for their students. It can perhaps be said that there are primarily four kinds of chess books. 1. Beginner's Books 2. Advance Strategy Books 3. Opening Books 4. Books of Historical Interest What makes Chess the Easy Way almost unique is that it spans the first two and touches on the third. It can be said that this book starts off the player at the beginning level and rapidly accelerates, reaching almost the expert level by the end. As a re-printer of out-of-print chess books, I have been absolutely bombarded by chess coaches with requests for a reprinting of this book. I get t only more requests for this book than any other book, but I get more requests for this book than ALL OTHER CHESS BOOKS COMBINED.
