I've now finished reading Yasser Seirawan's book "Play Winning Chess". The book is relatively short, less than 200 pages if you don't count the photos chapters and glossary. A few years back, I got IM Jeremy Silman's "The Amateur Mind" (but couldn't read it as I didn't have the basics of chess) where he discussed 7 imbalances. Yasser's system looks very similar, and I guess it's no coincidence that Silman is a contributor to Yasser's series. The advice in those chapters is pretty good, though short.

Winning Chess Openings shows players how to do both. In Yasser Seirawan's entertaining, easy-to-follow style, they are shown formations that can be used with other White or Black pieces. develop a solid understanding of opening principles that can be applied to every game they play-without having to memorize a dizzying array of tedious and lengthy opening lines.

“Play Winning Chess” is the first in a series of “Winning Chess” books co-authored by American International Grandmaster Yasser Seirawan and American International Master Jeremy Silman. It is an altogether excellent book that does a wonderful job of instructing beginners on how to play chess.

I usually don’t purchase books intended for beginning chess players, but since “Play Winning Chess” is the first in a progressive series of books (the others being “Winning Chess Tactics,” “Winning Chess Strategies,” “Winning Chess Combinations,” “Winning Chess Openings,” and “Winning Chess Endings”), I decided to begin with the basics. I’m glad I did.

What most impresses me about this book is how very well written it is. Seirawan and Silman are both exceptionally knowledgeable writers who convey their ideas with clarity, precision, and humor. Seirawan and Silman's prose reminds me a little of the late, great chess author Fred Reinfeld’s writing, and I consider that to be high praise indeed.

“Play Winning Chess” is a very well-organized book. After covering the history and basic rules of chess, the authors explain their concepts with simplicity, according to four time-tested basic principles that will lead aspiring chess players to play winning chess. The four principles are: Force, Time, Space, and Pawn Structure. Using examples from games they played, Seirawan and Silman illustrate these principles in a clear and easily understandable manner. The book contains a bounty of diagrams to help illustrate the author’s points. However, the diagrams in the Kindle versions tend to be a bit on the small side.

“Play Winning Chess” is perhaps the best novice player’s chess book I’ve ever read. It belongs in every serious beginner’s library. Highly recommended.

This is an excellent book and introduces the reader to the basic principles such as force, time, space and pawn structure. I would definitely recommend this book to not only the beginners in the game but also to those who have been playing chess for a while but have not gone through any good material for understanding the basic principles. There are times when players are stuck in deciding their next move but application of these principles help in not only deciding the moves but also help avoid moves which can seriously jeopardize a player's position.

This in an introductory, first chess book targeted to the beginner-novice player. It focuses on explaining what GM Seirawan posits to be the four primary principles of chess – Force, Time, Space and Pawn Structure. Understanding how to properly evaluate and use these principles will enable the player to formulate plans and strategies to significantly improve his/her chances for a successful result in their games. The importance of the concepts introduced in this instructive book cannot be overstated. In fact, I consider this book to be a MUST-READ for every beginner whose goal is to play better chess! If you're serious about wanting to learn to play good chess - START HERE!!

This book is simply an excellent introduction to the principles of good playing. Seirawan's grandiose style might be a little unflattering for many, but I find it humorous. Clearly he's earned the right to speak about crushing opponents, and I believe it's done sort of tongue-in-cheek as inspiration for the perhaps sordid newbie (myself). I now perform much more admirably against 1300-1900 rated friends of mine, usually taking them to an interesting endgame, thought my position is typically much weaker. All in due time!

Once Seirawan introduces algebraic notation, he jumps right in and expects you to have it memorized, so be ready to have a mini chess set on hand, or a phone app where you can play both sides. It is simply too much for a beginner to keep visualizing the positions as they change from the printed board. I prefer the tactile experience of actual pieces to a phone or ipad app. If you're the same way, I recommend the Checkbook Magnetic Travel Chess Set, especially if you wish to use this book while commuting or traveling. I travel often and this is a great tool.

In summary, if you are thinking about getting into chess, and don't really know which book to buy, get this one and start playing!

I bought this book for Chapters 7-9 where Yasser gives his solution to the beginners problems with studying openings. His recommendations are very close to those given to me by my chess coach, and I wanted to see what he had to say about these openings. While I didn't gain much new knowledge, the book did confirm some things for me, and provided another view of how to handle the openings if you aren't interested, or don't have the time, to study, and memorize, an infinite number of obscure lines. For the club player this is an excellent approach to playing as both white and black.
