Présentation de l'éditeur

"When most people learn to play chess, they usually memorise the movements of the pieces and then spend years pummelling away at each other with little rhyme and even less reason. Though I will show you how each piece leaps around, what it likes to do on holidays, the real purpose of this book is to teach you to understand the four major principles of my Seirawan method: force, time, space and pawn structure. Each is easy to understand and each is a weapon that will enable you to defeat most anyone you challenge to a game", Yasser Seirawan

Play Winning Chess is an enthusiastic introduction to chess that will transform you into a veritable gladiator of the chessboard. Seirawan begins by explaining piece movement, chess notation, the rules of play and basic tactics. His examples, question-and-answer sections, psychological hints, and lively sample games help you learn strategies and play aggressively while having fun. Discovering how to engage in clever attacks and subtle defenses will take you beyond the thrill of competition into the realm of creative art. Play Winning Chess is exuberant and conversational, enlivened by personal anecdotes and fascinating historical details.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good, but steep learning curve 11 juillet 2004
Par David Hood - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book aims to take the reader from beginner, possibly not knowing how the pieces move, to a player able to think and develop their game without getting wiped off the board quickly.
We start with the obligatory rules of the game. Yasser doesn't waste time, they are taught quickly and then boom, you are thrown into chess playing.
After learning the rules of the game, we are introduced to two basic checkmates, King + Queen vs. King, and King + Rook vs. King. No King + Bishop + Bishop vs. King, or the dreaded King + Bishop + Knight vs. King but that's ok as they are of greater difficulty. A beginner will do well to just learn the methods for these two mates.
All well and good, but nothing any other beginners book hasn't done before. Yasser now throttles up the pace and exposes the reader to 4 ideas, at least one of which isn't typically exposed to beginners. Force(material inequality), Time(piece development), Space(control of the board) and Pawn Structure. These will be tough to move onto for someone who has just picked up the pieces in my opinion but they are the next necessary steps.
Finally we have a collection of several short games where Yasser annotates the typical beginner mistakes that were made and why they are losing. This is probably the best part of the book and it does a good job of tieing together the four chapters on the concepts he taught. A glossary of chess terms, many not used in the book is also included.
As a foundation, this would be a good book for someone who really knows very little or nothing at all, but despite Yasser's easy style it moves fast and will require work from the reader.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Great for a fast learner 31 juillet 2006
Par Sara Singer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Say you already know just a little bit about chess (like the piece movements and rules) and are a sharp and quick learner. This is a good for you then. It moves along very quickly and gets into basic strategy in no time at all. If you are a kid, know absolutely nothing about chess or want to take it slowly then consider getting Learn Chess by Alexander & Beach or a more basic book for a Beginner. So what I am saying is this book is well designed for certain individuals and the only other book like it is Lasker's Manuel of Chess.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good for someone who already knows the basic rules 25 décembre 2006
L'évaluation d'un enfant - Publié sur Amazon.com
This is NOT to be recommended for someone who is learning from scratch. It moves along way to quickly and gets to running before you have learned walk. Then why does it get a good rating of 4 stars?

This is a "good" book for someone who knows how the pieces move, knows the very basics of strategy and wants nothing more than a brief primer on anything before that, yet wants to get to the next parts of strategy. It doesn't overly focus on one area so it is a rather general book and a little difficult to understand where the author intended to fit this into the rest of his series. If you are more of a beginner then get "Learn Chess; a complete course" by Alexander and Beach which is far superior when it comes to covering both basic rules and strategy.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 The best modern chess primer 2 novembre 1999
Par Un client - Publié sur Amazon.com
This book is the best modern primer on chess available. Yasser Seirawan writes with the authority of a top-rated chess player whose main idea is to get beginners to learn the main ideas about chess. Unlike other books, Seirawan pays little attention to specific moves and concentrates on four important cornerstones of the chess game. Material ("Force") is usually the concept which is easier to assimilate, but Yaz successfully stresses that development ("Time"), territorial advantage ("Space") and position ("Pawn Structure") are as important as the first concept. The clarity with which he explains the ideas and connects them makes this book very suitable also for initiated players who are still crude in chess theory. The merit of this book is that newcomers will learn how to decide upon their chess moves taking into account the most important points of the game. Eight short games thoroughly annotated follow, where the practical aspects of all four elements are shown. A nice picture album, a very useful glossary, and quizzes spread along the text nicely complement the reading. Recommended for beginners and for those who, although already familiar with the way the chessmen move, want to take up the game of chess more seriously. (USCF ratings up to 1200).

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Understand the principles, don't memorise the rules 3 janvier 2007
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
My chess "career" started 20 years ago as a child. However, like many people, it stagnated. I got to a certain point, and then got bogged down in trying to learn opening sequences and just ran out of steam and got bored. I was under the impression that to play chess well, you had to have a great memory to remember all those opening variations.

Yasser Seirawan tells us different. He introduces 4 concepts - Force, Time, Space and Pawn structure. Playing with these principles in mind, memory is not required. In a very friendly and conversational style used throughout this book, Yasser relates a story from when he was young. His opponent was playing his first moves really fast, and Yasser struggled to maintain equality. However, by the time the middle game arrived, they were "out of the book", and Yasser quickly dispatched him, using these principles.

This book is a very good introduction to the game of chess. It covers the basic rules in the first 38 pages and then quickly moves onto the 4 principles. Another interesting facet of the book is that it is dotted with historical references and anecdotes about some of the legendary Grandmasters of the game.

Highly recommended. I have already ordered his next book in this series, "Winning Chess Tactics"
