Reviews

Despite being a strong player who is professionally involved in chess, at one time I was clueless when it came to teaching chess to a young beginner, in this case my own son! It was only after getting insights from Richard James, an expert in the field, that the fog started to clear. -- Nigel Davies (International Grandmaster) 20130226
