A Book As A Chess Teacher

January 03, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 195

Chess can be taught in a variety of ways and it is each person's choice how to find the best chess teacher for themselves.

Some people do well with live people, some do well with web links, videos, audios, and click by click prompts to explain each move and why it is the correct one.

Many people who have tried to learn by reading books have decided that chess is too complicated for them. The shorthand notation they use is too hard. But there are now books that the regular person who wants to learn about chess can do so. It probably wasn't that chess was too hard for them, just the book.

Books that teach in laymen's terms for beginners are the best. Books that explain the rich history of the game, the antique boards and pieces also enrich the experience. There are plenty of books with lots of pictures and diagrams of the way the board should look as the person steps through a game. We must first learn about the board, about the rows and columns and what they are called. How to correctly set the pieces, how the pieces move, what is the best way to start a game? What the correct ways to answer the opening movements are. Learn how to use the pieces as a group or army to protect the king instead of individual pieces acting on their own mission. Let the book teach you how to use more than one piece to set up the others and what to do after capturing or losing a major piece.

All of these things can be explained in the way a rocket scientist explains the blast off to the moon, or the way a person tells a friend how to make a recipe or their favorite holiday centerpiece. In other words it can be made to be very difficult but it doesn't have to be. Choose a book that fits your demeanor and personality. Try to choose a book that explains chess the way you want to hear it whether it is a serious book about the greatest moves of the grandmasters, or if it's a Complete Idiots Guide that teaches and sheds humor on the subject along the way.

Chess can be a game or it can be an adventure that can be a lifetime of learning. To find the correct chess book and the right chess teacher can make chess one of the most interesting travels you will ever take.

Alan Stables enjoys a game of chess, having played it from his teens. He has learnt various opening chess moves from chess masters, and has several chess tricks up his sleeves.
