    The mammoth book of chess is a 560 page book that I highly recommend Wink. The reason why is that this book is almost like the bible of the chess players Laughing It has great advice, over 50 puzzles, and I would say 150 of the greatest games analysed by a FM              ( Graham Burgesse ) and much, much, more ! Smile and it will allow you to improve in chess in a very fun way. ex : Capablanca's storry while telling you the tricks that he used to improve. ( Other players like Carlsen and Alhekine ect. will also be used for this.) And if you ever had a problem with understanding a popular opening, this book will for sure help you. It also has very interesting and funny tournament storys that is quite injoyable. And the nice thing is that you know that what you are doing is right because it is all told by a FM. This book has much more and will keep you busy Laughing.

    I like this book allot too.  Its nice because it offers many different ways to learn about chess.  You can do puzzles go though a classic game, study some openings, endings or common themes etc.

    In my humble view, it's certainly one of the best all-around chess books out there (judging by my copy that's the 2nd edition from 2000, but from what I hear the 3rd edition is not that vastly different).

    (Admittedly though, it would be even better if it wasn't for the annoying coordinates at every diagram. It's sad that publishers (or writers?) have apparently given up on encouraging readers to become familiar enough with the chessboard so as to get by without the printed coordinates - instead, most seem to have chosen to babysit the readers forever nowadays.)

    You can change the top level domain in the address bar from .fr to .com.

    (No worries, it's not that easy to log in under someone's account - you can't simply make a logon session accessible from elsewhere via a link.)

    The link I posted is correct in that it leads to the US page of the product. Royalbishop's link on the other hand points directly to the preview of the book.
