Most chess books cover some aspects of the game, be it the opening, the middle game, the end game, or strategy. A few have tried to offer comprehensive approaches to the entire game, but today, these efforts are mostly obsolete and hastily compiled. Bruce Pandolfini has provided a new, unified approach to the game, one good for beginners and experts alike. Pandolfini provides: a short introductory history of the game, the moves, rules, and notation, the basic principles of the game, pattern recognition and memory aids, traps and pitfalls to be avoided, a method for playing in any situation, defence and counterattack, famous positions and players, a resource guide to the best websites for playing chess online and loads more.
