Recommends it for: anyone interested in chess
Shelves: chess
Openings, endgames, positional aspects, tactical aids, and a bunch of other studying tools. This is a good sharpening tool as well.
Just look wherever you've found the others for a book of tricky chess puzzles to top it all off.

Notes:
a bit complicated learning a different 'algebraic' lingo for notation, but other than that a very useful tool for helping my 10-year old improve his game
