I was wondering if anyone has read the book "Pandolfini's ultimate guide to chess". I have a google nexus 7 tablet and this book is available. Also, any good books that i could download to my tablet. My brother had the book by Pandolfini called "modern weapons of chess" and he liked that one.
i should mention i am rated about 890 in live chess and 1500 in online chess, so i am somewhat lower rated player.
Amazon has a 'Look inside' option, why not read a bit?
EDIT: Actually it's just the first chapter which looks aimed at people who have never played. All the chapters sound like they are probably too basic for you.
i downloaded the first chapter and it was pretty basic, probably wont get that book.
Under 1000 you can definitely benefit from it. Get it along side another beginner book such as Schiller's Encyclopedia of Chess Wisdom.
