Any books on openings for beginners? :)

I really like 'starting out 1.e4'. Somehow the guy manages to explain it well enough to a beginner in a very small book. Loads of good games to play through. Not loads of variations, just a basic idea on strategies so you get a gist for what is going on in each.

Maybe consider My First Chess Opening Repertoire for White
or Opening Repertoire 1 e4.


I've began testing this online as well as against AI and getting excellent positions throughout. Tested the lines through an engine at serious advantage.


Only thing is that he advises for the open Sicilian which really is too confusing for beginners. Good effort though. Used his stuff against the Petroff, e5, caro-kann, french, all excellent.
