We've updated the cover of "Play Winning Chess" so that the Microsoft Press "RM" Winning Chess series has a more cohesive and dynamic look. Play Winning Chess is a sparkling and enthusiastic introduction to chess -- the moves, strategies, and philosophy of the game -- from International Grand Master Yasser Seirawan and International Master Jeremy Silman. The book teaches the Seirawan method: force, time, space, and pawn structure. To this end, the authors provide clear explanations of the game's fundamentals. Dozens of instructive examples, question-and-answer sections, psychological hints, and sample games teach players to strategize and play aggressively while having fun. This book is exuberant and conversational, enlivened by personal anecdotes and engaging historical details.
