    For the opening, stick to books published by Chess Stars and Quality Chess. New In Chess is sometimes ok as well (of course the Yearbooks are fantastic if you have a lot of time to go through them).

    Out of curiosity, what's the problem with other publishers?

    Generally, their opening books are of substandard quality compared to the publishers I mentioned. Though once in awhile they come out with something good.

    I would advise a player that has been playing chess after they reached their 3rd year to read the book. As far as throwing the book away..... it is not that serious. I have seen far worse books in the book store and they were over priced. Seen books that i had over 10 yrs ago and now they are triple the price with just a new cover.
