More endorsements for Chess 101:

"A fun and easy-to-read book that puts years of insight into one volume. From how the pieces move, to basic rules, etiquette, getting ready to play in your first tournament and more, this book is the doorway into the world of chess. It's a book I wish I had when I was a beginner.  It should be everyone's first chess book!"

Ernesto Alvarez

USCF national chess master and chess instructor


"I very much enjoyed reading Chess 101. I found it to be just what the parents of upcoming chess giants need: a clear explanation of the rudiments of the game. It also takes the mystery out of the tournament environment, chess clocks, en passant and other aspects of chess that often confuse new players. Great job!"
