Very good book!

I purchased this book for my soon to be six year old. The book is very thought out and takes you step by step. The quizzes at the end of each chapter as well as the brief stories keeps my sons attention. It has fun exercises and the lessons are not to long. Would definitely recommend!

Designed for kids, Good for adults

Although the Chandler book is for kids, I found it well conceived and well written. I'm no chess champion and found the information in the latter part of the book personally useful. Highly recommend.
