We've updated the cover of ""Play Winning Chess"" so that the Microsoft Press ""RM"" Winning Chess series has a more cohesive and dynamic look. Play Winning Chess is a sparkling and enthusiastic introduction to chess -- the moves, strategies, and philosophy of the game -- from International Grand Master Yasser Seirawan and International Master Jeremy Silman. The book teaches the Seirawan method: force, time, space, and pawn structure. To this end, the authors provide clear explanations of the game's fundamentals. Dozens of instructive examples, question-and-answer sections, psychological hints, and sample games teach players to strategize and play aggressively while having fun. This book is exuberant and conversational, enlivened by personal anecdotes and engaging historical details.

Review:

International grandmaster Yasser Seirawan has a knack for communicating not only the playing of the game, but also an enthusiasm for it. In this first of a four part series, Seirawan talks to the chess novice. He explains the game's development and basics of play, sharing stories of some of the wild and wonderful characters from chess history and Seirawan's own experiences. The language is simple and nontechnical enough for the greenest newcomer, who will hardly seem green at all after absorbing the lessons of this terrific introduction to chess.

From the Back Cover:

Play Winning Chess is an enthusiastic introduction to chess that will transform you into a veritable gladiator of the chessboard. Seirawan begins by explaining piece movement, chess notation, the rules of play and basic tactics. His examples, question-and-answer sections, psychological hints, and lively sample games help you learn strategies and play aggressively while having fun. Discovering how to engage in clever attacks and subtle defenses will take you beyond the thrill of competition into the realm of creative art. Play Winning Chess is exuberant and conversational, enlivened by personal anecdotes and fascinating historical details.
