Publisher's Summary

Most people claim to know how to play chess, yet all they do is move around a few pieces on the board with no strategy in mind.... This is where my book comes in handy. Without any complex terminology that other self-proclaimed chess experts preach, I'm going to show you how I annihilate my opponents 99 percent of the time. Whether you're looking to play some casual games with your friends or you're looking to step things up a notch and compete in a local league, these chess tactics, openers, and strategies will give you the competitive advantage you need to win.

There are no graphics

This is entirely audio and for a beginner it doesn't work for me to have the opening moves described, and at a slightly too fast pace, without providing any visual diagrams. I don't know why but I expected a few pages of visuals to be included. Silly me to purchase a audio chess book. Live and learn, at least it was only $4.00.

Review

This audiobook is pretty good for a beginner, although I would recommend that you listen to it while having a chess board in front of you.

Assume we.dont know what a b2 or e5 is

if the book is designed for begginers. . . why start with all the technical terms' I wish they would have assumed we were below novice. Chess is a difficult game to begin .

Unlistenable

This is a disaster.

I have listened to the first chapter an frankly to the beginner this is unlistenable.
The book refers to classic openings defences and attacks with code referenced moves. The delivery of the content is so fast that it is beyond comprehension.

Furthermore the narrator has been carefully selected to provide a very uneasy tone.
Even if I could understand the content I would not be capable of withstanding the narration at this time for anywhere near 6hrs......
Disappointing and a waste of money.
