Do you want to become a better chess player? A more proficient chess teacher? If so, then Dr. Alexey Root's Prepare With Chess Strategy is for you. Building on the Boy Scouts of America's Chess merit badge pamphlet, Dr. Root uses multiple examples to explain and reinforce the concepts introduced in that pamphlet.

Prepare With Chess Strategy is a step-by-step guide to help beginner- to intermediate-level players learn the common elements of chess strategy, such as Force, Space, Time, and Pawn Structure. Scouts and other players can practice chess with the book's exercises and test themselves with its end-of-chapter quizzes. Merit badge counselors, chess coaches, and teachers will find this book a valuable resource for their own lessons and workshops.

Prepare With Chess Strategy to achieve your chess goals!
