By means of a straightforward text copiously illustrated and a novel system of practice exercises and test questions, the reader can readily establish familiarity with many of the underlying principles of chess. He can learn to assess the relative strength of his and his opponent's position at any point in the game and at the same time find out how to set up winning moves.
