Theory and knowledge

Sycret

Hello everyone ! I would like to improve my game and i am asking for someone's suggestions about books i MUST read. And, what is the best way to progress "quickly" ? Thanks, Sycret.

Chess improvement takes patience, Sycret. The game itself takes patience. It takes quite awhile to get good at it.

You'd need several books to start with -- at least one on each of the following:

Opening theory.

Tactics.

Positional Chess.

Endgame.

Paul Morphy a Modern Perspective by Valerie Beim

and

Capablanca, a Primer of Checkmate by Frisco Del Rosario

are two books that I enjoyed looking through last spring and fall.  I believe they played a part in my progress.
