The book is filled with colorful illustrations. The illustrations portray chess pieces, pawns and the board rather plastic and realistic 3-D format, and while they look beautiful, when it comes to explaining chess positions, I have found 2-D illustrations (as chess positions are normally presented in other books) more helpful - it's easier to distinguishes pieces.

The book covers the very basics of chess: how each piece moves, how it captures as well as some basic tactics and strategies; but it may take you little bit more than a weekend to master these basics, both through reading and through practice.

If,you know how to play chess,don't but this book.This book is not for beginners but for those who don't know how to play chess.
Just pity this book is out of order but find it in your home-town bookstore.

I think this book is very helpful for beginners who have not acquainted with chess, but not so much good to over-beginners(?) whose rating about 1200. The specific property of this book is 3-dimensional view of chess board in color photos. But I feel some difficulty in imaging the situation compared to 2-dimensional figure. Anyway, this book contains all the basic rule, concept, tactics of chess in about 100 pages.

If you already know the basics of chess, or you know someone who can teach you, then Learn Chess in a Weekend is of no special value.
But for those who may want to learn Chess and know nothing about it already or believe chess is too complex or difficult, especially for kids (and their parents) just starting out this is the best book I have ever seen. Most introductory books are dry and uninviting, often assume you know at least how the pieces move, but this book has great visuals that give you a graphic feel for the game, is written in a very easy to follow style that a seven year old can follow and understand, and it does not assume anything about your familiarity with chess.
Can you really learn everything the book offers in a weekend? Maybe not. But in two days time you can learn the basics moves and tactics of the game with this book easily because of the style and the graphics. This is an excellent book for kids just starting out. Far superior to the the elementary "rules" that you tend to get with your chess set. It does work up to strategy and explores some famous games (which may be beyond young kids), but most adult readers will soon move on to books that are stronger in those areas.
Know a child who might like to learn Chess? Buy them this book and their first chess set and they will.
  • Simple fellow
This book lives up to its title. I literally learned chess in a weekend. Its handy size makes it possible to bring it with you anywhere you go as a quick reference for any questions. The book clearly explains how each piece moves; how to set up the board; and even explains moves that many people aren't (unfortunately) aware of like "en passant" for example. The photographs are crisp, clear and provide the utmost help in orienting yourself to how to play the game effectively. The book is great because it teaches you "how" to play chess (i.e, strategy, opening moves, piece placement for effective structure, etc.) so that you move in a direction away from just moving pieces arbitrarily. This was the book that demystified the often, or so it seems, enigmatic game.
