DO YOU KNOW A SMART 8-TO-14-YR-OLD WHO IS BORED THIS SUMMER? GET HIM/HER THIS BOOK, A CHESSBOARD AND A COPY OF THE MOVIE "SEARCHING FOR BOBBY FISCHER."
From 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 to strategize 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.
YASSER SEIRAWAN is one of the top-ranked chess players in the USA and was the first American candidate for the World Championship title since Bobby Fischer. He is a three-time US Champion, the 1989 Western Hemisphere Champion, and a six-time member of the US Chess Olympiad team. His achievements distinguish him as one of a handful of players to defeat world champions Garry Kasparov and Anatoly Karpov in tournament play.
