9780028644080: Teach Yourself Chess in 24 Hours (Alpha Books Teach Yourself in 24 Hours)

The origins of chess are still a matter of much debate--some believe the world's most popular board game originated in India; others claim it was created in China in the Sixth century, A.D. One thing is clear, however: chess is a game that transcends languages and borders and nationalities. Alpha Teach Yourself Chess in 24 Hours is a clear, concise, and fully comprehensive guide to learning this challenging but vastly enjoyable game. The book takes the beginner through the basics (rules, value of chess pieces, etc.) and takes the reader step by step until they are ready to tackle their first tournament. Along the way, the reader will learn basic chess middle games, basic chess endgames, and all the facets necessary to understand the different levels. This book will be a must for the beginner, the intermediate, or even those who know the chess but would like to brush up on their game.
