What is included with this book?


The two greatest challenges for beginning chess players are not only to survive the opening phase, but also to choose appropriate attack and defense formations in the process. Winning Chess Openings shows you how to do both. In Yasser Seirawan's entertaining, easy-to-follow style, you're shown formations that can be used with either White or Black pieces. Book jacket.
