Simple, Straightforward, Helpful

It's a quick and basic breakdown of the history, rules, and points of the game. Good for total beginners or someone who is only partly familiar with the game. The end includes a general theory of effective play and a basic strategy to try.

Great for rules and logistics

As far as strategies there's really only 1 basic opening strategy discussed...which is fine for a beginner book. This book does a great job discussing the rules for each piece and the logistics of board setup.
