The path to a perfect checkmate is possible with the advice and techniques of a Grand Master player in this informative and accessible chess book.

You already know just how enjoyable–and challenging–the game of chess can be. For those who play, chess leads to a lifetime of fun. But how do you make the first move to learn the rules and transform from a pawn to a king? The path to a perfect checkmate is in your hands! In the pages of this book, you’ll find an introduction to all the chess pieces including their strengths and weaknesses, tips on how to protect your pieces and prevent their capture, and guidance on when to attack and defend like a boss. You’ll also find a bonus tear-out card to take your new tactics on the go!
