I purchased this book a while ago on Amazon and purchased all Elliot' Chess School DVD Levels (Pawn-Knight-Bishop- and Rook) with the Workbooks from the Chess House. The titles were deceptive but when I read the book, I learned the personality and philosophy of Elliot Neff which is why I followed up purchasing the DVD Course with all the DVDs and Workbooks from the Chess House. I believe he had about 100 reviews on Amazon.com for his book that was rated 5 stars with nothing less and mostly everyone wrote an outstanding review. Below is my reviews of his course material. You would make a mistake not purchasing his book and course materials.
I purchased the entire series of DVDs and Chess Workbooks authored by Elliot Neff and my improvements were remarkable. He names his four courses Pawn Level, Knight Level, Bishop Level, and the final Rook Level and in that order. The Problem with the title is you may believe he is only discussing the pieces in the title and that is a myth. A better name would have been Learning Chess from start to finish Level 1, Level 2, Level 3, and Level 4. He discusses the board, notation, the pieces, their movements, tactics, Strategy in each DVD and the associated workbooks Address hundreds of board scenereos from both White and Black side of the board. Each level builds on previous learning and more advanced tactics and strategy from the openings to the Middle and finally to the ending. Each level has sectional tests and a final tests on the board. I played the videos over and over and used the rewind button till the material was learned before I even hit the workbooks. I used a pencil so I could erase and reuse the tests. If I not score 100%, I first went back to the DVD and reviewed again. I discovered 90% was an advanced level. You will learn a lot from this grandmaster who teaches chess in schools, authors chess books, and teaches you problem solving techniques. As a retired engineer, problem solving was my bread and butter, and I trained both junior engineers and technicians by the same methods he uses, theory and the hands on until they were on their own where they only came back to me with problems they gave up on. Buy whatever this Grand Master authors, and it is not as much as many of the other chess authors. You can use search engines on Elliot Neff.
