    Book Description

    Chess is Child's Play is a book written by parents, for parents. It is written for YOU!

    Chess is one of the oldest strategy games known to man. Studies show that children who learn chess at an early age gain such valuable life skills as:

    • Problem-solving ability
    • Improved patience and focus
    • Enhanced imagination
    • Greater self-confidence

    Chess educators Laura Sherman and Bill Kilpatrick have created an easy, step-by-step method for teaching chess that parents of all skill levels can use to teach children of any age.

    You don't have to know how to play in order to use the system. This book will teach you the game, while showing you how to teach your child to play. You will learn together.

    Chess makes children smarter. Give your child an advantage in life and teach him or her to play today!

Pawn sacrifices are incredibly common in chess games, and yet for some unknown reason they have been rather neglected in chess literature... until now.

      Kasparov vs. Karpov - 1975-1985
      This volume concentrates on the first two of those matches. The epic 1984/85 contest which was lasted six months before being controversially halted "without result" by the then President of FIDE Florencio Campomanes. The 1985 match when Kasparov brilliantly won the final game to take the title and become - at the age of 22 - the youngest ever world champion. Great chess contests have often had resonances extending beyond the 64 squares. The Fischer v Spassky match was played during the Cold War with both champions being perceived as the finest products of their respective ideologies.
