Has chess always fascinated you?

Have you always wanted to learn this game of strategy?

Does learning chess intimidate you?

If your answer to any one of these questions is yes, then this book is for you. Look no further; the solution to all your chess problems is right in front of you. As the name suggests, this book is for beginners. Either you have limited knowledge about chess, or you have no idea at all, this book will be your guide. In this book, there is a brief history of the game. Now, you would ask, what is the benefit of this history? The history will make you understand the logic behind the game; what was the main objective to create such a tact and strategy game? From ancient times to modern times. You will travel through the chess timeline. From an era where playing chess was limited to nobility to recent times, it is a competitive sport. Once you are hooked to the story behind the whole game, the book will slowly guide you towards the learning process.

It starts with the basics of the game. All the parts and pieces are explained in detail. The number of rooks, bishops, knights, and the pawns on each side. The role of the queen and the king. The unique moving style of each piece across the board. Next, the objective of the game is discussed. Then the rules by which you play. You will have to memorize the basic rules and regulations. But do not worry, the book follows an amazingly simple format, which will make your learning experience more like fun.

After you have been fully familiarized with the fundamentals, we will discuss the famous chess openings. The most common endgame strategies are also explained in detail within the chapters of this book. Of course, becoming a decent player would require much more practice and real playing, but this book will provide you with a head start.

Apart from being a hobby to some and being a competitive sport to some, chess has numerous other benefits. You can say that learning and continuing to play chess will serve as an exercise for your mind. The game challenges your intellect, pushes your mind to think, plan and strategize. Like the body needs physical exercise, similarly, the mind requires mental exercises to freshen up and gain strength. And what else is better than exercising the mind in a fun way. Chess is your all-in-one ticket for enjoyment and mental health.
