Which chess book to start with?

Apr 16, 2009, 10:01 AM |

There are people here on chess.com who have not laid hands on a Chess book ever, though they might have been playing chess for years. These players like me are avrage players who just learnt chess playing it; They often make mistakes in games (right in the openng moves) which is unlike the players who have gone through some opening with a book in hand....We Need Help

Wanted to know your views and suggestions for which chess book to start with?

One of my Chess literate friend suggested "Common Sense in Chess" by Capablanca. Let me know how it is ? (if you have read it i.e.) Would it be a good First chess book for a person already knowing/playing chess? if not please do make suggestions.
