5.0 étoiles sur 5 Still the best for the beginner and beyond. 14 mai 2001
Par S. Cunningham - Publié sur Amazon.com
It has been said that one becomes serious about chess when one buys their first book on the subject. I became serious when I bought this book. Pritchard's agenda is to take the absolute beginner to the standard expected of a good club player. That's quite a leap, but it's a goal Pritchard achieves with ease and style. Beginning with an explanation of how the pieces move, we move through basic concepts (forks, pins, en passant etc.), tactics, strategy, how to handle the opening (including a list of the most common openings currently played), middle-game and end-game. All of the subjects are handled in a highly literate style that is accessible to all ages, with the sure-footedness of a seasoned master, and without condescension. The reader feels assured that the lessons being given are of the highest quality, and that the principles absorbed will always be relevant, regardless of fashion.
From my own experience, The Right Way To Play Chess completely transformed my game. Prior to reading this book, I knew how the pieces moved, and considered myself a chess player. Yet I was constantly defeated by friends, and grew increasingly frustrated at the apparent ease with which they did this. Having read the book, the defeats came to an abrupt halt (strangely, so did the games - a coincidence, I'm sure). Against most casual players, I now had not only the ability to handle most situations but also, crucially, the knowledge to enable me to *understand* why certain situations should be handled that way.
The Right Way To Play Chess remains absolutely outstanding, the benchmark for beginners. I cannot imagine a better book for giving you a rock-solid foundation on which to build your chess career.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Not bad at all 23 février 2002
Par Hike Musa - Publié sur Amazon.com
Not bad. Maybe 2 typos. I was getting my behind kicked on yahoo chess, but this book and a few puzzles has helped me to finally win some games. And I am only on page 95!! I hope I finish tonight since it is the weekend and I can go back and be more competitive. Good book, but you will need more to supplement this. I suggest puzzle books, and books dedicated to tactics, strategies, combos, sacrifices, and the openings. This books stuffs all of that into one and you can't do that in 224 pages.
Overall, I would recommend it to a friend. It is a good starting place.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 THE PLACE TO BEGIN 22 novembre 2002
Par Wil B.H. - Publié sur Amazon.com
I must admit that I am only on the 3rd chapter of this book. I began reading it 4 days ago. It has helped me tremendously. I had to give it a rating before I finished the book to let those who are in a similar position see how great this book is. I have been playing street chess for about 7 years. I must say that I was pretty good or at least thought I was. I had no formal training, I didn't even know what an 'opening' was. I could play but didn't have a solid foundation of strategy and tactics. For the past 3 months I have been searching for a book that would give me a good foundation. It was necessary for me to Reassess my chess from the ground up. Several books were over my head and I thought about the Idiot's Guide. Anyway, "The Right Way to Play.." has helped me to understand annotations and several other aspects of learning about the game from the first few chapters. If you are a somewhat good player w/out any formal training and do not know where to take your game from here, get this book to build a solid foundation and you will be sure to increase in knowledge and ability.
I will write again when I finish this book to give you a more serious and in depth rating of TRWTPC.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 Good Beginning 3 mars 2003
Par Jamie Jeffords - Publié sur Amazon.com
Anyone who is either thinking about getting into chess playing or is currently getting their behinds whipped by friends would do well to pick up this book. It is a fantastic start to a chess library, as it gives the novice player a solid background as well as a few nifty moves to make one a formidable player. This book teaches a player how to think two, three, or four moves ahead and accurately predict how your opponent will fall in line.
This should only be the first in a series of books any beginning player should read, but itis a highly recommended starting place.
5.0 étoiles sur 5 From the Back Cover 2 juin 2008
Par Emily Grace - Publié sur Amazon.com
"The Right Way to Play Chess," now in its eighth edition, has been internationally acclaimed as "the best" book for beginners. It might well be subtitled "Chess without Tears." Designed to take the drudgery out of chess, it guides you easily and confidently through all the stages of the game. It may be a while before you can take on Bobby Fischer, but it's the best first step you can make.
