My Chess Books Vol - 1: Bobby Fishcher Teaches Chess
Yes this is the first book on chess that I have purchased. Furthermore, I paid full price $10 at Indigo. Apart form the "programing" me to play chess in a specific fasion. This book does infact have many helpful ideas. The back rung mates and interpositions, as well as importance of pins is what stood out for me. Perhaps the programing did work as I did gain better understanding of such ideas. In short this is a good excercisse book for beginners with some very solid work on the fundations and important principles.
