Needs downloadable diagrams

Audible was good but with out diagrams you only get half of what you pay for. Would recommend paperback version not audible.

A very simple and well-spoken this audible.

This is a good beginner's audible. The explanations are clear and the diagrams are excellent. I think you do need a chess set and board alongside to really absorb the points in the book but you probably have one. Would recommend.

I am satisfied to this audible.

I am satisfied to this audible. My grandson likes the set very much. The only thing I would have changed would have been to have a handle on the box. However, he is very satisfied.
