Добро бързо книжле за обучение по шах най-вече на деца, по старата съветска методология.

This book is excellent, and would get five stars if it were not for the poor typesetting which makes it hard to navigate.

This is the book I use to coach grown-up chess students. I have them work through it in sequence, and the sequence is very well designed to challenge, teach well, and leave no aspect of training untouched.

I think that Lev Alburt's comprehensive course is excellent, and the books are exactly what the titles promise they will be.

The problem is that the typesetting is a bit weird

so far i have found this a great book. It has certainly advanced my chess game, having gone to consistently loosing to a friend to consistently beating him. I am only 1/4 through the book. It is very dense, full of examples, and has a good approach for teaching each lesson. I highly recommend it for anyone reading their 1st or second chess book.

Vuosien tauon jälkeen innostuin taas pelaamaan shakkia, mutta eihän siitä tullut yhtään mitään. Niinpä luin kertaukseksi tämän jo entuudestaan tutun oppikirjan, ja eikös vain pelin taso parantunut heti, kuten on aiemminkin käynyt.

Alburt is a hero. You can almost use this book in place of a human coach if you can find stronger players to review your slow games.
