This is an excellent book for parents and chess coaches. The explanations are clear, brief and peppered with the wisdom coming only from having taught many children how to play chess.

This is a great book on chess. I'm new to playing chess seriously, so the "Junior" title seemed appropriate for my needs. However if you want to learn chess, books are not the place to start. This is possibly the best beginner book on chess, but interactive software like Chessmaster is by far better.
