This book is a really great book for players that have just begun to play Chess or don't know how to. It provides a smooth sophisticated teaching guide to Chess. It's all very logical and easy to follow. I'd critique the book on it's method in teaching the tactics involved in the latter chapters as this can only be truly learned with experience and playing.

A good book on chess, but not at all like a Harry Potter book (of course).
