I'm starting to study chess and I need some books with annotated games to study. I've thought about some books like: My Great Predecessors (Garry Kasparov), My 60 Memorable Games (Bobby Fischer), Understanding Chess Move by Move (John Nunn), among others but I worried this books is too difficult for me. So help with this!
And also recommend me others books about opening, tactics, strategy and endgame that may help me.
Dan Heisman's list is good.
Russian Chess by Pandolfini is another good one that would probably be situated toward the easier end of Heisman's list of instructive anthologies.
