Jesus gave people a wonderful game – chess! The game is very popular around the world because it helps a person to learn how to make informed decisions: certainly necessary in this modern and complicated world! During 25 years of coaching, I have helped more than 600 boys and girls to learn how to make their first chess moves. Among them was the present world chess champion among people with disabilities Alexei Smirnov (FIDE ID 4168437, FIDE Elo 2451). The methods for learning the basics of chess which are set out in this book have been repeatedly tested and brought excellent results. The material is given in a simple and effective way so that Teach Yourself Chess can be used by a person of any age who can read. For this tutorial, the only requirement is a chessboard with its pieces so that the reader can apply theoretical information immediately. This tutorial can be successfully used by parents who want to teach their children the basics of the game. I am sure that this book will be useful for school teachers who decide to involve their students in an exciting game.
