About The The Soviet Chess Primer - Maizelis

Ilya Maizelis's masterpiece is the definitive introduction to the game of chess. It has inspired generations of Russians to take up the game, including arguably the two greatest players of all time, the 12th and 13th World Champions. In the original Russian, this landmark work is simply called "Chess"-no other explanation was considered necessary. The Soviet Chess Primer is a modern English translation of Maizelis's witty introduction to the royal game.

Good book to fill in some gaps

I wish I had this book back in 1971. This book provides a systematic approach of building up your chess skills. It is interesting to read and not too wordy. The exercises are well thought out and help you track your weak areas. I'm coming back to the game after some years off. This is what I needed to get back into the game again. It works well as a self study text. I was happy chess house had this item on hand.
