In my opinion it is a good book if you know the moves, and want to become a step better, teaches you a lot of useful things in a short time, but never eliminates the need for further study. I think it can be a good choice for your first chess book.

Great instructional book. Teaches skills that are actually transferrable to real chess. Novel idea. Not just scenarios, but actual theory.
